A nationally-recognized leader in independent education, MICDS is a private, co-ed school for students from Junior Kindergarten (age 4) through 12th grade. In a small elementary school with access to the resources that only a JK-12 school can provide, our Lower School students benefit from a diverse and inclusive student body, access to a world-class faculty and a student-centered curriculum.
At MICDS, our mission is to prepare students for higher education and a life of purpose and service as engaged citizens in our ever-changing world. Our youngest learners are constantly exploring the world around them, discovering new interests and developing a passion for learning along the way. When your child attends MICDS, they'll pursue academic excellence bolstered by state-of-the art classrooms, labs, facilities, theatres and art studios.
