Carmel Clay Schools Expedition program is an eight-session program will takes a small group of Carmel residents on an exclusive educational journey and a behind-the-scenes look at the operations, programs, incredible educators and outstanding students of CCS. The program runs August-April.
Throughout the year, participants are immersed in our school buildings and participate in extended dialogue and hands-on activities as we explore topics including elementary and secondary curriculum, school safety, school finance, food services, transportation, technology, mental health and much more. Participants also have fun meeting students and staff, dining on healthy school lunches, traveling on a school bus and uncovering the culture of excellence that is CCS.
The application for the 2018 Expedition Program is now closed. Please be on the lookout for the next application opening in late Spring 2019.

“Being part of the CCS Expedition group was a very enjoyable experience. Having the opportunity to learn about all of the aspects of the Carmel Clay School system from curriculum, to the safety of our children was very impressive. We can also be very proud of the talented students and staff that make up Carmel Clay Schools and their positive, energetic attitude of excellence. I found the experience very educational. This program has given me even greater confidence in what I feel is one of the best school systems in the country.”
Jack Beery, Carmel Dad's Club
“The Expedition program was insightful in ways that I could not have imagined. From the remarkable methods of team teaching that we observed first hand in our elementary schools to the incredibly talented students, teachers and department leaders we interacted with at Carmel High School, every meeting was one filled with new experiences. Whether you have children the CCS system or are simply interested in learning what our schools do to prepare our young people for the future, Expedition is an eye opening and purposeful opportunity. I would recommend it highly.”
