A celebration of culture

ISI connects languages, cultures, and people from every corner of the world.
The inaugural ISI International Week will celebrate our diverse and vibrant community
by sharing the cultures of the 50+ nationalities represented at ISI with Central Indiana.
This ISI community favorite is back with a new date and time and with an exciting new announcement!
ISI parents, alumni, and community partners (ages 21 and over only) will come together to celebrate the start of the school year, and the official launch of the ONE ISI Capital Campaign. 
Child care at the 49th Street Building will be extended until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 17. More details regarding this will be provided in daily communications. 

Experience, taste, and celebrate the world at this new ISI combined event! 

The school day will conclude with faculty, staff, all ISI students and parents convening on the Michigan Rd campus for a beautiful display of clothes and flags of different countries at this new ALL SCHOOL event. The celebration extends into the evening with The International Festival, another new event open to our school and the entire Indianapolis community.

All Lower School students will travel to the Michigan Rd campus via school buses. It is recommended that parents arrive to the Michigan Rd campus at 2:00 p.m., as the Parade of Nations will begin promptly at 2:15 p.m.

Following the event, after school child care for all enrolled students will be hosted in the Blackwell Building on the Michigan Rd campus, and will end at the normal time of 6:00 p.m. More information regarding this will be provided in daily communications. 

Thank you to these food trucks for attending The International Festival! 


ISI athletes shine on the court and the field before all students take to the dance floor in a weekend show of ISI pride. 

Homecoming games begin with women's volleyball on Friday evening. The men's soccer team will play Saturday morning, and homecoming festivities conclude with the annual High School Homecoming Dance on Saturday night.
