We were honored to have Dr. Barry Corey, President of Biola University, speak to our high school students and parents on March 3. Dr. Corey's talk focused on practical tips for preparing for college and highlighted the transformative potential of the college years.

The transition from high school to college can be a challenging one, as students are faced with new academic, social, and personal responsibilities. Dr. Corey's advice can help students navigate these challenges and make the most of their college years.

Dr. Corey emphasized three key areas that students should focus on to make the most of their college years: a commitment to biblical truth, living a receivable life, and striving for excellence in their profession. These three points can help students stay grounded in their faith, build meaningful relationships, and develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen careers.

For example, a commitment to biblical truth can help students stay true to their values and beliefs, even in the face of new ideas and perspectives. Living a receivable life can help students build bridges with people from diverse backgrounds and form meaningful relationships that can last a lifetime. Striving for excellence in their profession can help students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen careers and make a positive impact on the world around them.

At ICS, we are intentional in making sure that our students and families are given the opportunity to hear from great speakers like Dr. Corey. We believe that exposing our community to diverse perspectives and expertise is vital to our students' educational experience.

Dr. Corey's visit to our campus highlights the unique and special community we have at ICS. Our commitment to Christian education and values is evident not just in the classroom but in the way we interact with one another as a community. We believe that education should be transformational, not just informational, and we are committed to providing our students with an educational experience that will empower them to make a positive impact on the world around them.

We are grateful for Dr. Corey's visit and his words of wisdom, which align with our mission and core values. We hope that our students and families will take these lessons to heart and use them to guide their own educational journeys.

Thank you for being part of the ICS community, and we look forward to continuing to provide our students with a truly exceptional education that prepares them to overcome challenges and make a difference in the world.
