Steeped in the Catholic tradition of forming students academically, spiritually, and morally, ICCS has been educating students from all faiths and backgrounds for 100 years and is the only Catholic Classical Education school in Memphis.
As we move into our next century of providing excellence in Catholic education, we are excited to enhance our students’ learning by implementing the Classical Education Model. This change will provide our students with a complete education that feeds their minds while forming their character.
The Foundation of Classical Education Classical Education is distinguished by its approach of teaching children how to think instead of what to think. It focuses on the basics: reading, writing, and arithmetic, with a strong emphasis on language and communication.
Technology is used as a tool, not the instrument through which students learn. Students develop communication and problem-solving skills through active class discussions and interaction, giving them the confidence to express their viewpoints and the courage to ask questions — traits they will carry with them for life.
We pledge to reinforce in your child the values of teamwork and mutual respect that lead to forming secure, healthy relationships and open the door to true self-respect.
