Dear ICA Parents,
It is truly a thrill to welcome you to ICA and its founding church, ICLV. I’ll never forget the day 20 years ago when the thought of starting a leadership academy that emphasized excellence in all things came to my mind. It seemed like an impossible task. Our church didn’t have any buildings or land. We had no curriculum or teaching staff. We were a small, baby church struggling with the daily mission of helping a hurting city.
The challenges were even larger than this. I was not really trained to be a pastor. I was a counselor and college professor, with a Master’s in Psychology and Counseling.
Our faithful God provided everything we needed to build a school that would eventually become a first class academy. There were amazing people who rolled up their sleeves and led the way. I am forever grateful for their contribution to ICA and the children that have graduated. I also want to thank the teaching staff and administration for their amazing leadership and spirit.
We currently stand at a new crossroad. Our administration team and our advisory council, led by Isabelle Parker, our ICA teachers and our wonderful PTP have prepared the new ICA. The new and improved ICA, for sure.
We are blessed to have our principal Lisa Adams, here for her 3rd year. She holds a Master’s in Education and is a gifted and qualified teacher and leader with a long and distinguished career in public education. I’m confident that you will fall in love with her and our entire team.
ICA is driven by new vision and desire to train your child to become a leader in our city, state and nation. We are building on the fabulous foundation of our past. We are grateful and now we are progressing. I look forward to see what we can build together to provide the best environment for our children and teens.
Moms, dads & grandparents, we are here to partner with you. We are committed to you and your family. We love you and bless you.
Thanks for partnering with us.
Paul Marc Goulet
Senior Pastor, ICLV
International Christian Academy exists to develop servant-minded leaders for Christ through academic excellence and Christian character.
Our vision is to glorify God by developing and releasing strong leaders with Christ-like character. ICA represents one of the three major influences in the life of each child: the home, the school, and the church. Optimal student success is achieved when this three-fold cord works in partnership.
Relationships are God’s idea for community; therefore, all relationships at ICA are about partnership and discipleship dictated by God’s principles and precepts.
Students will leave International Christian Academy well prepared in all academic disciplines to excel at the next level in their educational career. Standardized test scores and letter grades as well as academic awards will evidence this.
Upon leaving International Christian Academy, students will practice a healthy lifestyle that combines a variety of physical activities and sound nutritional choices.
Students will exhibit a Christian lifestyle as evidenced by: servant-minded leadership, selfless giving, Christ-like character and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
International Christian Academy students will be leaders serving the world with the goal of biblical community and emphasizing mercy, grace, patience and personal responsibility.
