While over 75% of all private schools in the state of Florida are not accredited, Island Christian School enjoys full accreditation status by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS), the National Council for Private Schools Accreditation (NCPSA) both of which are nationally recognized by the Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools (FAANS) and our international affiliate, the International Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (IACCS). FACCS accredited schools are recognized and accepted as such across the country. In addition, as of the 2011-2012 school years, Island Christian School enjoys regional accreditation with the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Former financial administrator of the school. The school has transformed from a good school to a great progressive one with a strong leadership who stresses educational excellence and Christian values.

We choose ICS because it offered the flexibility and personal attention that we desired due to our work in another state during part of the school year. Over the next six years our daughter received an excellent education and upon graduation from ICS a number of scholarship opportunities. Out of several, our daughter selected a full tuition scholarship at a private university. ICS does offer an outstanding education as well personal attention to each student. There are also special extracurricular and travel opportunities not available at the public school level.

If you want your child to do well, this is the school! You pay goo money for the A's and B's. My child went from a 'B' student to an 'F' student when I put him inot public school from ICS. He was an 'ESE' student and this school just does not have the resorces of the public schools. Monroe County is an 'A' district, and with lots of hard work from the teachers and at home he managed to graduate with his class.

All three of my children have graduated from Island Christian. All three have gone on to college. When they were in the 4th and 5th grades, I took my boys out of the local public school and put them in Island Christian School. It took 6 months of tutoring to bring them up to the level of Island Christian. After the initial 6 months they were able to maintain at least a B average, thanks to the dedication of the teachers at Island Christian. I feel it is a fantastic place for all children. It provides a well rounded education both academically and physically. There are opportunities in sports for both the boys and the girls.

The Florida Keys do not offer exceptional public education for their children with no driver's education or vo-tech classes for example. ICS has been a refuge for Keys Kids who want to go on to college and are serious about a good education. The type of kids who attend ICS are wholesome, happy and friendly promoting a safer and better learning environment. The teachers at ICS are outstanding and deeply care for students, even keeping contact daily or weekly with parents especially if a student is having problems. For a private school, ICS has made it as affordable as possible, especially with the tremendous high cost of living in the Florida Keys.

My wife and I are deeply grateful for the education and training our children have received at Island Christian School. The teachers/administration have helped motivate our children to develop themselves fully, and to give their best. Our children have appreciated the level of interest and helpfulness their teachers have shown them. (Each of our 4 children began their education in pre-school here, and 3 have now graduated.) The prevailing attitude among the students has been positive (especially this year), and our children have enjoyed ICS and the extracurricular activities. We have also become friends with a family who drove their children to and from this school daily from the Miami area (about an hour and twenty minutes away) for what I believe was an entire school year. They have since moved to this area so that their children could continue at ICS (and the children s father now commutes to Miami).

I went to ICS when I was a child (4k-5th grade). In 6th grade my parents put me in public school. When I got to public school I was behind in all my subjects. I did not know anything about major events in history, science, math, nor any other main subject, but I could however recite many bible versus and tell you about every character in the bible. I hope by this time the school has taught something else except for bible class.

I attended ICS and was astounded at the lack of compassion for all people. Though I have grown to realize that all humans deserve respect, it was not due to my experience at ICS. Though parents may believe that their children are receiving a quality education at ICS, in reality, the children are simply learning how to hide their delinquency better.

My son is in the high school and is challenged to excel by caring professional teacher and staff. I am very pleased with the academics and the opportunities he has in extracurricular activities

Not only is the curriculum outstanding, I love the fact that morals and values are taught on a daily basis. My children have an incredible faith at a very young age. The small class size is the icing on the cake. Last year, my 2nd grader was reading on a 10th grade level. This is an amazing school with amazing teachers.
