History

ICS was founded in 1993 by a group of parents from several different nationalities and walks of life. Their common goal was to establish a Christian school in Singapore to serve the needs of both corporate and missionary expatriates. Led by Mr. Graham Holderness of St. George’s Anglican Church, the school opened the doors of its elementary program to the expatriate community of Singapore under its original name of Christian International School, Ltd. (CIS).

In 1995, the CIS school board voted to become an affiliate member of the Network of International Christian Schools (NICS), which operates a growing network of Christian international schools in East Asia and throughout the world. That same year the high school program was added, and the school’s name changed to International Community School (Singapore).

During the summer of 1996, ICS was accepted as a candidate for joint accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). After a site visit in October 1999, ICS was awarded full accreditation for by both ACSI and WASC.

Today, we have 440+ students and 80+ faculty and staff members. With a low student-teacher ratio, our teachers are fully committed to excellence as well as to the development of the whole student – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Our goal is to have an environment where Christ is modeled and taught daily, to educate minds and transform lives to impact the world for the glory of God.


Our mission is to educate minds and transform lives to impact the world for the glory of God. Our teachers view each student as a unique individual created by God, thus take seriously their responsibility to teach, encourage, and guide them. With a low student-teacher ratio and students from over 26 nations, ICS is a fully accredited K-12 international school teaching an American curriculum with a Biblical worldview. Since our founding in 1993, we foster a caring community committed to provide each student with a quality, holistic education within and beyond the classroom. Alongside academics, we instill in each student a love and respect for all cultures, a zeal for lifelong learning, and a passion for personal excellence.
