About IMS: Independence Mission Schools (IMS) is a non-profit network of schools re-envisioning Catholic education in and around the City of Philadelphia. Located in neighborhoods that have historically been underserved by other schooling options, IMS schools offer a faith-centered and academically rigorous alternative for our families. Since our inception in 2012, our enrollment has grown over 20%, and we have received increasing recognition as a network that successfully integrates faith, character, and academics to create warm, energizing schools that are sustainable for students, staff, and community.

Ultimately, IMS recognizes that our students are on track to make their own choices in pursuit of college and career opportunities because they are on grade level academically and enrolled in a high-quality high school. Today, IMS serves over 4,000 pre-K to 8th grade students across 14 schools, our students are outperforming 80% of their neighboring public and charter schools in reading, and our schools play an important role in transforming our communities.

Our Vision: We strive to become a top-tier academic destination for all children in Philadelphia. IMS students will leave our school community emotionally and spiritually formed by our Catholic example, performing at or above grade level, and enrolled in a rigorous high school program that enables them to achieve their dreams.

Our Mission: To provide a transformative Catholic education that develops students intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually and that provides children of all faiths across the City of Philadelphia with the opportunity to learn in an academically rigorous environment and to grow in a culture of love, setting them on the path to a promising future.
