Welcome to ICS
Head of School's Welcome,
Ivy Collegiate School was founded to serve a small group of students and parents seeking an accelerated curriculum and a better way of preparing for the rigors of college academics. Unfortunately, in today's education market, students are often given little choice about their academic experience and the direction it takes. At Ivy Collegiate School, our goal is to provide a curriculum that challenges, motivates, and inspires students to find their own passion for learning.
As a collegiate school, we view secondary schooling as the first stage in the college experience, and accordingly focuses on giving students the best possible preparation for the next great leap in their educational career. We never forget that our first goal is developing a true spirit of scholarship. We believe that the best way for students to develop the confidence, creativity, and intellectualism required of the modern international student is through personal engagement and consistent effort, as espoused by our school’s motto: Scientia ac Labore (“Through Knowledge and Hard Work”). Our commitment to each student and the personal attention we give them is driven by this philosophy, and I believe that is what sets Ivy Collegiate School apart.
Our first and foremost mission is to facilitate in every possible manner the dreams and aspirations of every individual that passes through our doors that they might someday open doors for others.
Mr. Patrick Collins
Head of School
