Irvington Community Schools (ICS) is a tuition-free, public charter school open to K-12 students in Indiana. Additionally, ICS offers a fee-based pre-kindergarten program. Young learners who turn four years old before Aug. 1, 2023. Students entering Kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year must turn five years old before August 1, 2023.

ICS offers all students an innovative and relationship-centered experience rooted in academic excellence. As a community-based school, ICS delivers an academic model based on the fundamental belief that it is our responsibility to prepare students to be thoughtful, involved, and productive members of society. This goal is achieved through student-centered learning, social-emotional learning curriculum, service-based learning, student-driven club activities, athletics, and peer mentoring.


Irvington Community Schools participates in Indianapolis’ unified enrollment program called Enroll Indy. It’s time already to start thinking about enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year!

  • All current Irvington students are guaranteed a seat for next school year.  No additional steps are required for these students.
  • Students enrolled in PreK at ICES are guaranteed seats in Kindergarten the next school year, but must apply through Enroll Indy in order to secure their seats.
  • Siblings of current students receive priority, but parents must complete an application through Enroll Indy (enrollindy.org) in order to secure their child’s KG-12th grade seat for next year.
  • Preschool enrollment is handled separately from KG-12th grades.  Families wishing to apply for a preschool seat for the 2023-2024 school year will need to complete this application by January 25, 2023. Parents/Guardians may also call Deanna Dehner, ICS Enrollment Officer, at (317) 357-3770 ext. 1158 to determine seat availability.
