Masks must be worn when visiting concessions, restrooms or any ICS activities at the event and when not in your car or personal parking area. Social-distancing will be expected. The BBQ dinner will be available from 7:00 to 9 pm with the movie beginning around 9 pm.

Classical Cocktails

2021 Classical Cocktails was held virtually on March 18, 2021 and the event was live-streamed. The event was co-hosted by ICS President Janet H. McNeal and ICS Board Secretary Dan Roy. Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education was interviewed during the event, and was honored for her contribution to Indiana Charter Schools. Viewers also enjoyed performances by ICS Theatre Department scholars and statements from a number of alumni. A recording of the entire event can viewed on the event website.


Soirée is Indianapolis Classical Schools flagship fundraising event and an important community-building opportunity for our supporters, families, faculty and staff. Proceeds support The Indianapolis Classical Schools Fund.

Soirée began as a way for ICS families to meet one another, get to know our faculty and raise funds for our schools. This event has grown over the years to become a much-loved affair for the entire community, featuring wonderful food, dancing, entertainment, auctions and more!

Our 5th Annual Soirée, Presented by Horizon Bank and scheduled for April 2020 was canceled. ICS also made the decision not to plan a Soirée for spring 2021 as well.
