Student Taught Academic Mentoring Program
ICS devotes a significant amount of time to helping student leaders learn the skills they need to help younger students become strong community members. These leadership skills and the community strength that develops through a structured approach all add to the academic experience. Students meet with their assigned peer group for coaching and then use their skills with younger students.
We have a camp experience in the beginning of every school year.
