Indian Creek School is an independent, co-ed day school in which students age 3 to Grade 12 partner with innovative teachers in an outstanding educational program. Located on a beautiful, 114-acre campus in Crownsville, Maryland (just north of Annapolis), ICS students are nurtured and known as individuals while being challenged to discover their passions, purpose, and potential. ICS students develop self-worth, the confidence to take intellectual risks, and the ability to work collaboratively, and they are prepared to live in a dynamic and global community where achievement comes not only from knowing but knowing how to learn. The Indian Creek community is actively committed to diversity, equity, and belonging, and we foster an inclusive environment in which students feels understood, valued, respected, and affirmed.
ICS seeks faculty and staff who support our mission and values, who are committed to nurturing learners as individuals, and who are looking to join a vibrant community of professionals who are passionate about education. Faculty and staff are offered meaningful opportunities for professional growth. Because we are a small school, every member of our community plays a critical role in making sure the institution lives up to its mission.
