International Community School is a private, Christian school, based on the three pillars of faith, family, and scholarship. Because we believe that family is important in the education process, students follow a university model, attending on-campus classes three days per week.
Parents partner with certified teachers to complete teacher-directed lesson plans at home on the other two days.

School Notes

  • At International Community School, our faith guides our beliefs and practices as an educational community and unites us through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. Because we first come together around a desire to follow Him, we have the only true and lasting hope for a unity that transcends cultural, denominational and geographical boundaries and helps us live out our mission and vision. We believe that no knowledge is incompatible with Christian belief and that moral training is necessary to help learning find its ultimate fulfillment in service. International Community School strives to produce learners and leaders who will contribute well-trained minds and hearts to an interdependent global community through a lifetime of personal ministry as they reflect the character of Jesus Christ to bring connection, healing and reconciliation to the world. ICS is a truly unique school, allowing parents to partner with their child's teacher for an education plan that combines classroom education, parent instruction, and enrichment.

School Reviews

All 3 of our children graduated from ICS and we would do it all over again the same way! We have been at the school since 1998 (the first year of its existence) and although some things have changed over those years, the foundation has never changed - faith first, family next, then scholarship/academics. Those values aligned with our family values perfectly and are what initially drew us to the school and why we stayed. All 3 of our sons are currently in full- or part-time ministry in the church and we believe ICS definitely played a role in that as they were taught to love God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength. We love ICS and are forever thankful for its role in our family!
