Our Purpose

To provide a superior, independent, college preparatory education, serving a diverse student population in a safe, supportive community, conducive to the intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of each Independent student.

Welcome to the Independent School

It is part of our daily mission to provide a superior education conducive to the intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of each Independent student. The Independent School is an accredited member of the Independent School Association of the Central States (ISACS). Membership to ISACS is achieved through a rigorous evaluation process. This prestigious organization offers our faculty strong learning communities and national level professional development opportunities.

A comprehensive extracurricular program at all levels flourishes as students expand their interests into a wide variety of sports and academic competitions, winning multiple state championships. Our community service projects have been recognized locally, regionally and nationally.

The Independent School continues to build on the simple premise that originally guided Mrs. Garvey over 30 years ago: to provide a cost-effective, college preparatory education for a lifetime of learning.

Best Regards,

Karen Norton 
Interim Head of School
