Academics

ICS's academic program is college preparatory in nature and emphasizes both community service and AP class enrollment. We presently require 40hrs of personal community service (PCS) as well as additional hours in our Serving and Learning Together (SALT) trips each year. In addition, we offer 12 AP courses and continue to add to our offerings. Class rank for each student is based on a grade point average that is weighted and cumulative for grades 9-12. The average includes all courses taken at ICS but does not include transfer grades from other schools.

Senior Capstone Service Project

In order to graduate from ICS, every ICS student in the class of 2015 and onward must also complete a Senior Capstone Service Project (CSP). This entails that all students research a real-life problem, gain hands on knowledge of the issue by spending many hours in service towards helping with that problem, come up with possible solutions, and write a reflective paper describing their experience. They then must present their findings and final product to a panel of educators at the Senior Capstone Service Project Fair in the 2nd semester of their senior year.


 

Graduation Requirements

In grades 9-12, one credit is awarded for each one-year course completed with a passing mark of "D" or above. One-half credit is earned for completion of one semester. A minimum of 26.5 credits are required for students to graduate.
