An Investment in Your Child’s Future

 

Tuition, Finances & Fees

At ICS, we understand the financial sacrifices each family makes in order to ensure their child receives the very best education available. While it is difficult to put a value on an ICS education, we work to ensure tuition expenses are closely managed and that all families are aware of the financial aid and grant opportunities available to them.
