Our Location

Situated on the north shore of Lake Maxinkuckee in North Central Indiana, Culver Academies’ location is reflective of our school’s personality: inclusive, distinguished, and naturally impressive.


The Culver campus and facilities are spread out over 1,700 acres of picturesque landscape and outlying countryside –  devoted to academics, student life, and athletic activities.

In this place, students from all walks of life come together in excitement about their futures. They become immersed in their surroundings and embrace the legacy and the possibility that comes with it. 

Learning in an Oasis

The benefit of learning in such a location is simple and direct: students gain important habits for life when the challenge is high, the routine is clear, and accountability is required.

Behind the "Corn Silk Curtain"

Just beyond the rolling prairies and woodlands of our campus, lies the vibrant town of Culver, Indiana and the surrounding Lake Maxinkuckee community.

Lake Maxinkuckee

This majestic centerpiece is the second largest natural lake in Indiana, a beautiful and busy wonder that unites Culver residents and visitors alike. From boating to fishing to water sports and more, there is always something to do at the lake’s shores.

Named for an Indian word that is loosely translated to “clear water,” Lake Maxinkuckee was first settled by the Potawatomi tribe. They, like founder H. H. Culver, were drawn to the land and its serene, rejuvenating qualities.

Today, Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee sit at an industrial hub near the crossroads of U.S. Route 30 and 31, connecting the community to South Bend, Indianapolis, Chicago and beyond.
