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. People like Bob Mekus, Barbara Loupe and so many others 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, led by Gilbert Quintana, our advisory council, led by Isabelle Parker, ICA teachers and our wonderful PTP have prepared the new ICA. The new and improved ICA, for sure. We firmly believe in 2 Cor. 3:18, “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
I’d also like to welcome our new principal Lisa Adams. 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.
