We focus on providing a personalized educational option where, from the earliest ages, we grow students with strong world views yet teach them to be sensitive to others understanding each person is special and valued.
We provide a safe, solid and caring base for intellectual and academic growth and see that our students become enthusiastic learners in this environment.
Our school is a true community of parents and students that support each other and have a desire to bring sharing and openness to the local community and the world at large. Spirituality is integrated into the daily classroom experience and is the basis for problem solving, engaging with others, and ethical decision making for life. ICA is a Small Learning Community which puts students in more visible roles in the classroom, improves the school climate creating closer student/teacher relationships allowing for a more personalized educational experience.

My daughter has been attending ICA since she is 20 months old. It's been 3 years of amazing education, spiritual learning, and a safe and warm environment. I send my daughter to school every day without a single worry in my head that she will be taken care of. She goes to school happy, and she comes back happy.

We love ICA! It`s my happy place! Whenever I drop my kids off I just want to stay there in that energy. It`s such a loving and warm place, I feel like I`m sending my kids to school with family. I love how the small classes make sure my kids get a lot of individualized attention and by far the best and most unique thing about this school is the spiritual concepts they learn. It makes all the difference in getting a solid start!

My three kids 6, 4, and 2 years old go to ICA right now and they love it. It`s such a warm and wonderful school that focuses on the emotional well-being of the students. All my three kids have so different needs and are such different characters, I love that the teachers see their personalities and support them in their learning and needs. Both of my older kids are excited to learn and say it`s fun because it feels like playing. Even though academics are important to us, kindness and emotional intelligence are what we highly value, and love that the school and teachers live exactly that.

Such a warm and welcoming school! We couldn`t be happier with the attention our son gets from his teachers and the hardworking and dedicated administrators. A true rarity in LA! So happy we found ICA!

All of my 6 children attended ICA - among 10 other schools around the world (we relocated for work). The warmth and individual attention at ICA are unparalleled. Each of my children was taught by their exceptional staff to be independent, confident thinkers and communicators who are emotionally intelligent, globally minded, and deeply connected to their spirituality, cultural traditions, and the land of Israel. They were accepted to academically rigorous schools upon their departure from ICA, and I cannot take credit for any of the above. ICA is a diamond!

Going here was the best decision I ever made and the lessons learned have carried on throughout my life. I continue to utilize education not just with academics but as a holistic human being. I love this school and if you are looking for a place to build values and life concepts for your children I would highly consider you giving consideration here.

The amazing school our two-year-old son just started two months now and he loves this place and all the staff. Everyone is super attentive and gives their individual attention to all the students. The school we trust with his Judaic studies and personal growth to be a well-rounded person. We get daily updates on him and videos/pictures! Highly recommend this school!

A very special Spiritual school that produces students of the best "midget" and character. It is small which means special attention is paid to each child. No other school like it ANYWHERE! Visit it and see for yourself.
