If you're new to Orchard, please follow the link above. We would love to tell you more about our mission to develop and educate the whole child. Hope to hear from you soon!

The Orchard School is an independent day school in Indianapolis that provides private preschool through eighth grade. Our school has a commitment to advancing each student’s academic success, self-confidence, open mindedness, ethical character, leadership, and love of learning. For 99 years, we’ve engaged the natural curiosity of students in an active, child-centered learning environment, while living out our mission: to develop and educate the whole child.

Next Open House

Join us on Thursday, October 21st from 6:30 - 8:30 PM for an "Evening at Orchard"

Stroll the halls and see the educational spaces where hands-on experiential learning comes to life and chat with teachers and specialists while indulging in complimentary wine, beer, and appetizers.

This event is for parents/guardians only and masks are mandatory. However, a portion of the event is outside and masks are optional in our outdoor learning spaces.

We can't wait to meet you! We hope to see you there!

The photos above are from our last Evening at Orchard (pre-pandemic). Please be sure to bring your masks! 

"My favorite thing about Orchard is the amount of time my daughter stays away from her desk. Real learning is active. It's out in the world. I love that Orchard's curriculum is fundamentally built around this principal, from taking a bus ride to learn about cities in preschool, to forestry field trips in second grade, to science experiments and civics presentations in middle school."
