Park Tudor is an independent school on the north side of Indianapolis. Our preK-12 community focuses on academics and extraordinary opportunities from early childhood to college-prep high school courses.

History

The Park Tudor story began more than a century ago, when two neighboring schools built an exciting new learning community in Indianapolis. From the start, Tudor Hall School for Girls and Park School for boys have shared a common mission. In 1970, we united – and ever since we have prepared students for success as compassionate citizens of the world.

Why Choose an Independent School

It is the independence of private schools that offers the four essential freedoms that make them strong:

  • The freedom to define their own mission (why they exist, whom they serve).
  • The freedom to regulate admissions (admitting students who will best benefit from the school's mission).
  • The freedom to define teacher credentials.
  • The freedom to teach what the teacher decides is important (free from state curricular and textbook mandates).

Research shows that families new to independent schools choose our schools primarily because they perceive the quality of teaching to be exceptional and the moral climate to be appropriate. The typical independent school often has more diversity (racially, ethnically and socio-economically) than neighboring public schools. Park Tudor’s student body is 26 percent diverse.

The socio-economic diversity of independent schools is supported by a significant commitment to financial aid. Independent school students come from all family income levels, and one out of three students is supported by financial aid.

Independent schools are also different in terms of the effectiveness of the partnership between parent and school. We speak in a unified voice about a common set of goals and values, and it is this coalescing of parental and school voices that points students toward achievement and guides them toward decent behaviors and good citizenship.
