We're Bringing a New Kind of High School to Lancaster.


The Stone Independent School is a progressive, interdisciplinary 9-12 independent school which believes that all students learn best by doing.  It is our mission to graduate students who are prepared for college and prepared for a world beyond college, who practice empathy, ethicality, and gratitude, and who are committed to making the world a measurably better place.

We’re a group of ten teachers, 14 board members, and an enormous community of leaders who believe that great schools should serve as a call to action and we intend to take action through a rigorous, progressive curriculum; an emphasis on community partnerships & entrepreneurship; a comprehensive culture of service; a sophisticated global education program; and a commitment to institution-wide diversity & transparency.
