One School

Founded in 1977 as a ministry of Kingsway Christian Church, the Indy West Christian School emerged from the visionary dream of Jan Caldwell, wife of Kingsway’s first Senior Pastor, John Caldwell. Her vision was to create a Christian school offering an excellent, Christ-centered education. With humble beginnings featuring just two teachers and 25 students in first through fourth grades, we’ve stayed true to our mission, growing into a thriving school system.

Nearly a half-century later, we have a new name but the same mission. In 2023, we relocated to Westside Church of the Nazarene and Avon Parkside Church of the Nazarene, extending our commitment to excellence in Christian education. As part of this change, we became an Indianapolis Christian School System. Today, we proudly serve two counties, offering education from Preschool to eighth grade.
