Welcome to The Stanley Clark School. SCS has provided the finest education in our area for generations of bright, motivated students in a traditional, college preparatory environment for more than 60 years. We are an independent, coeducational day school enrolling students from age three through 8th grade. We are accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States and hold membership in the National Association of Independent Schools.

Our graduates attend local high schools of their choice as well as some of the finest boarding schools in the nation. Stanley Clark alumni routinely graduate at the top of their high school classes.

The decision about whom you trust with your children’s education is one of the most important ones you make on their behalf. The significance of finding the school whose mission resonates with your expectations of excellence, whose faculty members are extraordinary, and who values the importance of personal responsibility, integrity, and a sense of community cannot be underestimated. At The Stanley Clark School we share these values with you.

Our mission is “to inspire and challenge students to achieve excellence in academics, the arts, athletics, and character in a nurturing environment that fosters critical thinking, creativity, accountability to self and others, and the discovery of each student’s strengths and passions.” At SCS we realize that the trust you place in us must be earned through consistent delivery on the promises we make.

To our current families, thank you for the privilege of partnering with you in the education of your children. To our prospective families, we invite you to contact us to learn more about the unparalleled foundation The Stanley Clark School provides for children.
