ICS is an amazing school! As a parent who attended private schools K-12 including four Christian schools with assorted curriculums which didn't always meet the mark and a high level private, all girls prep school for high school, I can say that ICS is the best school I have ever encountered in my K-12 educational experience. We are thankful for the leadership which understands academic excellence and character are intertwined. We respect and support the desire and curriculum which unashamedly teaches biblical truths. We love that the environment is warm and positive, and if you learn one thing at ICS as a child, you learn that you are loved, and it is in that context that teachers teach, instruct, correct, meet challenges and interact. As a parent, I love the fact that the school is beautifully organized, expectations are clear and communicated, and I am always welcome. My younger daughter is counting the months until she too can attend.

Great school in the DMV area. Academically, spiritually and socially nurturing. They are opening a High School in the 2019-20 year. The faculty cares about the children and show grace without foregoing expectations of student responsibility.

The teachers are very caring and do not just push the kids through the system. They took the time to help my children be successful academically, socially and spiritually. ICS has the resources available to help students with educational challenges. I'm so thankful to be here as I do not believe we would have gotten the attention we needed in the public school system.

Just moved to ICS earlier this year and was very hesitant how my kids would adjust. They''ve been to only one school prior to ICS and I didn't know how they''d do with the change. But I found that they are not only surviving, they are in fact THRIVING! The teachers are great - full of love and genuine care for students. The administration runs like a well-oiled machine - very professional. Security is top-notch, the facilities are beautiful...I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about this school.

This is our 5th year at ICS. We have a daughter in 4th grade and a son in 2nd grade. Another daughter will be in kindergarten next fall. I am constantly amazed at the caliber of education, both in academics and biblical instruction. I love that Bible teaching is intertwined with the academic curriculum. The academics are challenging. It is obvious that the teachers really care about their students; the school environment is encouraging but not coddling. Expectations are high but so are the rewards. We feel blessed to be a part of the school.
