About Student Outcomes

In the heart of Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Christian School System is more than just a place of learning; it’s a community of faith and knowledge. Our purpose is clear: “to glorify Christ through faith-inspired learning and leadership.” With this mission as our compass, we provide an educational environment where faith flourishes, learning thrives, and leadership emerges naturally.
