Because we are a safe, secure and nurturing environment offering a values-based education! We are proud of our identify as a Catholic school and we strongly believe in our traditions and values rooted in the Roman Catholic faith. The students participate in daily religious instruction, prayer time and weekly Mass attendance.
Our facilities have been upgraded to keep our students safe and secure. A new door locking/entry system and strategically placed high definition security cameras have been placed throughout our campus for the 2017-2018 school year. These initiatives, coupled with our front office RAPTOR sign-in security system, ensure your child/children are safe and secure while at school!
Because we strive for and achieve academic excellence! ICS was the first school identified as a STREAM school in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and we remain on the cutting-edge for instructional technology in the classroom and full integration of Science, Technology, Religion Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics into all areas of our academic program. Our community partnerships with area business and colleges help us achieve with distinction the kind of program that will provide your child the skills needed to be successful in the 21st Century!
In 2014, ICS was awarded the National Blue Ribbon of Excellence and in 2017 our Pre-K Program was designated as a "Level 5" Maryland Excels Provider through the Maryland State Department of Education. Both designations solidify ICS as a school of excellence in the areas of early childhood care and instruction as well as high standards in both our elementary and middle schools! We are proud of our highly qualified instructional staff that form and instruct our students. The results can be seen in our test scores which are among the highest in the Archdiocese!
In 2017, ICS opened its STREAM Makerspace Lab which is used by our youngest students in Preschool to Grade 1. This lab is equipped with "out of the box" technology like a vertical Lego board, Ozbots which allow children to learn the basic language of programming, Chromebox computers with extra-large monitors allowing students to access specific educational sites like s ABCya, ABCmouse and Starfall. While our interactive light table gives students a different visual perspective when building objects. These tools develop eye-hand coordination and allow children to learn through sight and touch.
Because we are a Family! This is truly a school that cares about our students and their parents or guardians. Immaculate Conception School strives to create a positive learning environment for all learners, and we work hard to build a school community that will help our students reach their full, God-given potential!
