One of the best parts of my job is talking about our school and giving tours to families who are considering ICA. I've had seven or eight tours so far in just the month of March, and have found that almost 100% have become interested in ICA on the recommendation of a friend or acquaintance. Although we are always looking for innovative ways to reach new familes, YOU are by far our most effective marketing tool. Thank you for spreading the word!I am grateful for everyone who responded to my question two weeks ago about why you send your student(s) to ICA.
Here are the results of that informal poll:
Of those who responded, the top reasons parents indicated they send their students to ICA are:
1. the moral/values based or biblically based worldview
2. the academic environment/quality education
3. small class sizes
4. caring or dedicated staff
Here are some of the comments:
"Passionate teachers and staff.
"Faith based top of the line education with family like, warm environment.
"Excellent academics taught by enthusiasts teachers!
"I know the staff cares for and loves our kids like their own, which is apparent in their work, play, and attitudes."
"We chose ICA for a quality education with a Christian worldview and great teacher-to-student ratio."
There are many more similar responses, but there are also a few reasons that are less common you might want to use as talking points when you're sitting at the baseball or soccer game chatting with other parents this spring.

I've attached a photo below of our future politians who are headed to Washington, D.C. next week. Can't wait to hear their stories!
Have a lovely "spring" break next week!
