PHILOSOPHY OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
At IICS we believe in a God-centered education that emanates from the self-revelation of God given to humankind in the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God, the Bible.
We believe that God wants to enter into personal relationship with human beings. He has made himself known in the Bible and in His Son, Jesus Christ, God incarnate.
He has also revealed Himself through created order (Romans 1), human conscience (Romans 2), and through the unfolding of events in history.
As God’s image bearers we have the capacity to perceive and comprehend God’s self-revelation. Yet, due to sin and willful disobedience humans may suppress and reject this self-revelation (Romans 1:18).
We at IICS desire that all students understand the fear of the Lord and enjoy a personal relationship through faith in Jesus Christ. In addition, teachers want students to bring the mind of Christ to all subjects and to know God through all the subjects.
Thank you to IICS for helping me out with my studies and my admission processes. I was really grateful because back in Year 11, I was so struggling to decide which university to go to, but I was fortunate enough to participate in the IICS University Fair where I got to meet representatives of different universities across the world.
Moreover, I would like to thank the IICS teachers who calmly provided me with certification, as well as letters of recommendation that were necessary for my admission process. Really grateful for the IICS teachers and university counselor, who definitely supported and encouraged me throughout the processes.

Age-appropriate Approach to Disciplining Children
Teaching children about discipline regardless of their age is important to their development. Through discipline, children learn the concepts of "right" and "wrong". But parents need to take the right approach in disciplining their children. This is what is called art in disciplining children because parents need to approach them in different ways, besides that […]
