Our kids are growing a thirst for God's Word every day from their teachers and administrators and staff who are thirst for it too. Yes, ICS is academically challenging. ICS is safe and provides a great learning environment. Our kids receive Bible teaching and memorize verses. But there are other schools in this city they can get those things - even the Bible teaching. But at ICS, the Word of God is sinking into the souls of my children. And God is using my children to teach and encourage me. We are so grateful to be a part of this community. In a world turned upside down, we praise God for our school that is committed to the unchanging Word of God that provides the foundation for the integration of faith and learning.

To have [our daughter] at ICS [means] that she is literally surrounded in all aspects of her life - at home, at church, and at school - with positive Christian values. We view ICS as a partner in helping her develop in Christ, to grow academically, and to become the kind and engaged citizen in our community that we want her to be. It is also very important that the quality of the secular aspects of her education be top notch. ICS has the type of educational programming that will prepare my daughter for success. We can think of no better place for our daughter and ultimately, our whole family, to be a part of.

The teachers are WONDERFUL! They truly care about the students, not only academically, but socially, emotionally, and spiritually as well. The school has a solid Christian foundation. Christian principles and ideals are built into the curriculum and every interaction with the students which in turn leads the children to develop a sense of a Biblical Worldview at a very young age. The minister at a church we visited after moving was extremely impressed with the boys' knowledge of the Bible and how it applied to their daily living. The administration is accessible and supportive of parents and students. The academics are solid, but the true strength of ICS is its heart: from the Head of School all the way down to the students.

Immanuel Christian School is worth the investment because the learning environment has transformed our son into a student who is absolutely engaged with learning. The school has lit a fire in our son to want to finish assignments with excellence. It is as if his teacher has surfaced in him a desire to learn, probe and question. The transformation exceeds anything we could have hoped for regarding him. We now have a resource rich community of teachers and staff who intentionally partner with us. For the first time, we have a sense of balance, trust and hope that both of our children will be given every opportunity to grow into who they were designed to be. The academic rigor coupled with the warmth of the staff create a place where our children eagerly embrace learning. Our children anchor the excitement of academic learning with the God who made them. ICS ensures that there is no disconnect between the two. They are challenged to see every subject matter as a window into the mind of God. This is thrilling! The school saturates not only their minds but their hearts with a deep concern for others and an intense love for the LORD. That combination catapults their growth and has brought peace and balance to our home. Prior to joining the ICS community, our focus was one dimensional. We fixated only on the mind; fact and knowledge acquisition. The school has gently helped us to see more broadly that true education reaches the whole child---the head, heart, and hands.

We love how the ICS Kindergarten program teaches learning through play and that our daughter finds it an absolute joy to go to school, not a chore. She can’t wait to go back every day!

When we searched for a high school for our daughter, the key area where ICHS stood out vs. every other school in the DC Metro area was the focus on the whole student vs. academics only. We wanted her to be nurtured spiritually and emotionally as well as intellectually, and only ICHS demonstrated a commitment to this in word and action.
