Middle & High School
Welcome to Secondary School
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
Yeats had a gift for imagery in his poetry. With words, he painted pictures. I love the imagery that Yeats creates in the above quote. Education should not weigh you down but inspire.
At ICSV, I have joined a community of inspirational educators. It is an honor and privilege to serve alongside teachers who strive for excellence in every student; teachers who care far beyond the classroom.
As you walk down the hallways of ICSV, you can sense that ICSV approaches education differently than other schools. ICSV is built on relationships. The ICSV community has 35 years of community building that has established a foundation of excellence in education. Students from diverse backgrounds converge in one place and find unity. They have the opportunity to partner in academics, sports, clubs, and other events far beyond the normal classroom.
From class trips to Prague and Romania, drama and musical productions, service opportunities, and leadership development opportunities, to projects and academic fairs; ICSV has a place for everyone to dig deep and excel in something that interests them.
Additionally, students from ICSV have successfully attended universities around the world. Our alumni are making a difference in their own communities. Joining ICSV offers a unique membership into a community that will impact students for life.
Most importantly, students can meet Jesus here. Their faith can be strengthened and developed. Teachers serve as mentors, as well as academic guides. Students can expect to graduate from ICSV having been challenged academically and in the area of character building. Students can expect to develop as friends, leaders, teammates, collaborators, and communicators.
I am delighted to join a well-established educational institution of excellence. I look forward to many years of watching students flourish and grow. God has begun a good work here, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to be a part of it.
Thank you for partnering with ICSV for your child’s education.
