The International Christian School of Vienna
provides high-quality, individualized education,
equipping students with Christian character
to impact the nations of the world.


ICSV is truly an international community made up of students from 60 different nations of the world. Students benefit from learning in such an environment because international education develops citizens of the world, building a sense of identity and cultural awareness. It also encourages global thinking and an appreciation for diversity.


ICSV values excellence in academics. A United States-based curriculum is used, with upper-classmen having the opportunity to enroll in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which leads to an IB Diploma.

ICSV’s academic program has been accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. ICSV has been granted Öffentlichkeitsrecht by the Austrian school authorities. All of our teachers are qualified, licensed, and approved by the Stadtschulrat Wien (Vienna Board of Education).


ICSV students study in small classes led by caring and professional teachers. In this environment, students receive greater individual attention, create close friendships with their peers, and experience true community.


ICSV staff members are role models of Christian character to the students. The academic program and learning environment reflect this in many ways. As teachers guide students through rich learning experiences, they also impart their worldview to the students, resulting in opportunities for students to develop a strong moral character.
