Immaculate Conception School's history began in 1870 when the first Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary was founded in Springfield, MO. In 1974, a Catholic school system was formed uniting local Catholic schools named Springfield Catholic Schools. Immaculate Conception School continues to be a proud part of that system.

School Philosophy: Parents/guardians are vital partners in education. Every member of our school brings to the community unique gifts and talents that enrich the whole.
An effective community celebrates God's presence through worship, prayer, and service. Provide incredible opportunities for student achievement. Students should be prepared to take their place as citizens in the larger world. Catholic values should be integrated in all subject areas. We believe in academic excellence and providing for the academic needs of all students. It is important to develop an appreciation for and an acceptance of cultural diversity. The moral, ethical, and spiritual values, modeled by Jesus, should be reflected in the lives of the members of the school community.

Immaculate Conception is a growing school with incredibly dedicated teachers with an average tenure of 11 years.Teachers provide rigorous instruction, opportunities for growth, and love students with unconditional support. Whether through the Tech Ninjas program, robotics, virtual and visual arts, or Geography Bee, students have so much versatility of experiences during and after the school day. One big project is the middle school concept-making. Middle school students change between five core classes on a bell schedule, are given additional choice classes, and have additional responsibilities truly making them the leaders of the building.

Service is an important part of our academic experience giving students the opportunity to see beyond themselves. Working with the St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantry and raising money for various charities are just a few examples of how the school gives to our community.The school is unapologetically Catholic filled with faith, service, and academic excellence.
