EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
We recognize the need for developing the whole child by teaching them skills achieved through leadership, working in groups, and service to the community. At ICCS, we encourage students of all ages, backgrounds, and talents to get involved and explore the many clubs, organizations, and extracurricular activities we have to offer.
