Our son attended ICCS from 1st-8th grade. When he started, we were new to Texas and needed more time to investigate the public and private school options. Our son benefited from the smaller class sizes and additional one-on-one attention, and we took things year-to-year. Soon, it became clear that the best decision was to keep him at ICCS. He participated in a wide range of extracurricular activities from orchestra to basketball, track, football, and modern oratory. While we are not Catholic, common Christian values were reinforced and nurtured. He made lifelong friends, and as parents, we did as well. He successfully transitioned to a large, public high school and thrived academically, socially, and athletically. He is now at a small, private, liberal arts college where his scholarships have enabled him to continue learning and developing while also playing his favorite sport. He will be graduating next year. Looking back, ICCS most certainly made a huge difference in our son's formative years. ICCS is like a big family. We recommend this school to anyone who might be looking for a smaller setting with a Catholic/Christian mission. The tuition is affordable, and the curriculum is aligned with the state standards. The faculty/staff all have teaching credentials; many of which hold Texas teacher certification.

Immaculate Conception Catholic School is an incredible School. My husband and I sent our twins to Pre-K here with the intention of placing them in a public school starting in Kindergarten. However, we quickly changed our minds. Our kids are taught so much more than academics, and the staff has been amazing. Our kids actually enjoy school and are learning so much more than I ever anticipated. It is wonderful knowing that you are sending your child to a school where they are surrounded by others that share the same values and morals as you, and that what you teach at home is reinforced at school. I highly recommend this school.

We are new to Immaculate Conception this year, and it's been a wonderful transition. We had been a homeschooling family for 6 years and needed a change of pace. My 4 children attend here, and as I was sharing with another parent today, ICCS does an amazing job at continuing on our Catholic culture that we have developed in our own domestic church. The faith is woven so beautifully throughout the day and permeates the curriculum. The staff are all active Catholics, and the academics are on point! It's been a wonderful place to call our new academic home.

Immaculate Conception Catholic School is a wonderful school. I originally sent my first child here for pre-k while we looked into a permanent school in the local Dallas/ Ft Worth diocese. After our first year we saw such amazing growth in our child that we knew we would stay. Not only were the academics solid but the spiritual growth and faith lessons my child was experiencing truly reflected the school's promise to "teach as Jesus taught." On top of all that, as we looked into other local Catholic schools, we realized that Immaculate Conception had one of the lowest tuition rates in the diocese. We have since sent all of our other children to this wonderful school.

I am a 7th grade student at ICCS and it is a very faith centered school. I have been here since Pre-K 3 and have always felt included. The teachers are very nice and the classes are fun.
