In elementary grades, students are exposed to computer technology in their individual classrooms as well as in the school's computer lab and through the use of interactive whiteboard technology.

In secondary school, ICS offers an applied technology program which includes hands-on experience in cutting edge technologies, including robotics, video production, graphic and web design, music composition, and more. To effectively integrate technology into various learning opportunities, students have access to laptops through our COWs (computers on wheels) and multimedia Mac and PC labs.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

International Christian School seeks to be centered upon Christ. ICS is committed to building God's Kingdom and integrating faith, learning and action. It is an evangelical Christian school that uses academic and extra-curricular programs to develop the whole student – intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually.
ICS affirms the authority of the Bible over all matters of faith, the exclusive Lordship of Christ and a life of discipleship leading to holiness, witness and service. There is no contradiction between the truth of revelation and scholarly investigation. The intersection of Christian belief, the liberal arts and sciences, and an ethic of service provide an educational perspective that unites theory with practice, leading to an increased understanding of God, self and the world.

Teaching approach of the school

ICS equips students with the knowledge, skills, and Christian character to serve and transform their communities while preparing them for tertiary education.
