New Indy West Campus

Currently K-4th Grade

KCS has accepted the invitation from Westside Church of the Nazarene to plant a new campus in the Westside facility. We feel God’s call to minister to a larger and more diverse population than our present facilities will hold. KCS desires to provide full-service care and to encourage families who enroll in daycare and preschool at Westside to consider the great gift of Christian education for the elementary years. This exciting news will give current parents of daycare and preschool children at Westside Preschool and Daycare, the opportunity to stay in the safe place they have called home.

The Westside Preschool and Daycare has a long history of success in loving area children well while their parents work to support their families. The KCS Charger family has established a 44 year history of providing excellent Christian education from Preschool – 8th grade. These two outstanding communities binding together will have the potential to provide greater access to full service Christian education on the west side of Indianapolis where Christian families are presently underserved.

The KCS long term vision is to achieve sustainability, diversity, and an increase in services to families from birth to graduation.

Our plan anticipates a July 2022 opening of the new Indy Campus for Kindergarten-4th grade students.

Core Values

Listed below are our three core values, taken from our purpose and vision statements.  It is our goal to see these values saturate every element of our school, from staff and students to athletics and events.

  • Love for God
  • Love for Learning
  • Love for Others

Vision Statement

We strive to honor Christ in partnership with parents and the Christian community by educating and motivating students to excel in future academic pursuits, to develop a confident Christian worldview, and to impact the world for Christ.

meet the principal- Jason Van Curen

I come to the role of Indy West Christian School principal after 15 years of serving Kingsway Christian School. I began this chapter of my life after moving to Indianapolis from Michigan where I was a full-time minister. I was accompanied to KCS on my very first day by my then 1 ½ year-old son, who attended the KCS daycare, and my kindergarten daughter. I was blessed to have them with me each day until they became 8th grade graduates.

While at KCS, I served the student population and their families as guidance counselor, Dean of Students, and most recently, as Director of Student Life. I also enjoyed being a chapel speaker, coach, bus driver, lunchroom monitor, traffic patrol, and so many other roles throughout my years there.

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Kentucky Christian University; my education certification from Madonna University; a Master’s degree in Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary; and a Master in Ministry degree from Kentucky Christian University.

I have been married to my wife, Tisha, who is a Speech-Language Pathologist, for the past 30 years. My daughter, Callie, is a junior at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ, and my son, Calen, is a junior attending Covenant Christian High School.

I can’t adequately express how excited I am to be leading IWCS. One of the greatest joys of working in a Christian school is watching a young life fall in love with Jesus. That is my passion and why I do what I do. Another great joy is watching a student come to the realization that “even when I mess up, Jesus still loves me.” It is on this foundation of Jesus’ love that we get to educate your precious children.
