  • A plush toy for each child and infant 
  • A glow-in-the-dark item to help you spot other ISI families while on the Zoo grounds

Head of School, Elizabeth Head, will be there to welcome you and your family. Your complimentary hot chocolate or coffee will be available before you begin to explore the Zoo!

become a sponsor!

The ISI Night at the Zoo benefits the ISI Annual Fund. While tuition covers many of the fees associated with providing an ISI education, it is philanthropic support through the Annual Fund that provides the additional resources necessary to enhance our facilities, ensure our programs remain accessible to a diverse group of students, recruit teachers from around the world, generate annual operating revenue — and consequently offer our students a world-class education that no other school in Indiana can provide.

A wide range of sponsorship opportunities are available for the ISI Night at the Zoo, or for the Annual Fundraising Series as a whole. Visit the Annual Fundraising Series webpage for information on how to become an event sponsor!

What is Night at the Zoo? 
Launched in 2020, ISI Night at the Zoo has become a popular community event for ISI. Annually, 250 people including ISI students, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and alumni participate in this social event. On this select night, families are able to avoid entry lines and join ISI community members for hot cocoa and coffee, socializing, and a special night enjoying the annual light display. Participants receive special souvenirs. All proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships benefit the ISI Annual Fund.
