School Description:

For more than 90 years, The Orchard School has remained a unique educational opportunity within Indianapolis and the surrounding communities. Our philosophy: When great teachers have the time and tools to truly engage students’ intellectual and creative curiosity, students excel. Orchard graduates consistently achieve academic, civic, artistic, athletic, and leadership honors. These successful outcomes are the result of a challenging and well-rounded education.  In 1922, nine mothers traveled east to study the progressive education movement with John Dewey. Today, progressive tenets still inspire Orchard students to delve deeply into learning through an experiential approach that builds upon students’ natural curiosity. Our enthusiastic teachers know that children will achieve when motivation and accountability are developed and expected. A team-teaching model ensures that students have a cadre of adults who watch out for them and challenge them academically and social-emotionally every school day. What is the result of an Orchard education? Academic and behavioral excellence and students who love school! The Orchard School is nestled within 40 acres of woodland and includes a log cabin, nature trails, three playgrounds, and track, soccer and baseball fields. In addition to vibrant classrooms, our school includes three gyms; two art rooms, five science labs, a theater and practice rooms for band, choir, orchestra and drama. Nearly $2 million of need-based financial assistance is awarded annually and a variety of payment plans are available to help families budget for their investment. Orchard’s Kids Connect program offers clubs, classes and care before and after the school day, along with a top-rated summer camp program. We invite you to visit our campus to experience for yourself why so many families choose The Orchard School.
