English schools in Asia
Founded: 1993; NICS Managed: 1995. Grades: Pre-School 4 - 12.
ICS is the only Christian international school in Singapore. It is a mid-sized school of over 350 students, offering preschool (age 3) through Grade 12 (pre-university), and utilizing an American-based curriculum. United States citizens comprise nearly half of the student body, and the remaining students represent over 20 additional countries.
Located in the southwestern part of Singapore, minutes away from the Clementi MRT and NUS, we offer an American curriculum from a Christian perspective for Pre-K through 12th grades.
ICS Singapore uses an American-based curriculum with some modifications to reflect our Southeast Asian environment. We are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as well as the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and our graduates have been accepted by an array of American and international universities.
A Word from the Principal:
Words like love, respect, nurture, care, and discipline carry with them a responsibility. At ICS, we take that responsibility seriously. Each student is loved as a creation of God that has great potential for impacting this world in a positive way. All our parents are respected for the role they are given by God to rear their children. Each faculty member is honored for the contribution he or she makes to nurture, disciple, and teach our children. This community, working together, produces a place where everyone feels secure and confident.
In 1993 several expatriate businessmen, local Singaporean businessmen and missionaries organized and began what is now International Community School. Even at its beginning, ICS reflected true community involvement and support as Christians across denominations and vocations joined together. Their uniting purpose was to assure that there would be an affordable Christian international school. Since that beginning, ICS has grown to over 200 students from families working here in business and industry as well as those serving here in a variety of Christian ministries.
