Program Choices

Perhaps the greatest distinction of international Community School is our response to the desire for choices in education. Because every family and every child is different, ICS helps create the best learning environment possible by offering options to your education plan with home learning, support, and enrichment.

All of our educational choices provide one of the most vital ingredients in a successful learning program: community. Through our regular meetings, parent partnership, and shared values, you will be surrounded by a community of people who are working and praying alongside you to help accomplish your educational goals for your child.

International Community School has national accreditation through Christian Schools International (CSI) and regional accreditation through AdvancED (SACS, CASI) and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI).

Current International Community School Program Choices

Elementary School

The Academic Program combines a regular schedule of classes taught by professional educators with alternate home education days. With few exceptions, curriculum and lesson plans are set by the classroom teacher, giving you the opportunity to be involved directly in your child’s education without the direct responsibility of planning your curriculum choices and your home education on two alternate days.

4th – 6th Grade, Middle School, and High School

Students in 4th – 6th Grade, Middle School, and High School meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in a university-style program that includes both core academics and electives. ICS High School students also enjoy opportunities for dual enrollment at several local colleges.


While E-Zone is a mandatory day each week for 4th through 8th grades enrolled in our Academic Program, it is an optional day for students in Pre-K through 3rd grade in our Academic or Private School Covering Programs. More information about E-Zone may be found on the following page.

Private School Covering (Pre-K through 8th grade)

International Community School’s Private School Covering Program is offered to those who choose to home school one or more of their children full time (with no group classes) who also have another student enrolled in the ICS Academic Program or who are on a waiting list to enter the ICS Academic Program. Parents develop the entire home school environment by choosing all curriculum and writing lesson plans, but still receive traditional school benefits including support services, academic counseling, participation in sports programs and extracurricular activities, standardized testing, and record management.
