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.
