Head of School Message



Welcome to ICS Addis Ababa, an innovative, history rich academic institution focused on Community Wellness, Global Citizenship, and Highly Effective Learning Progressive learning experiences! 

I invite you to join my wife Danielle, my son Alex, and I, as part of the ICS community with the goal of contributing to being our best, in Africa and our world. We welcome back all of our returning students and families, as well as our newest members as we start our new academic year face to face, with smiles and high-fives. 

In addition to our proven academic program which features the International Baccalaureate framework and a focus on personalized learning, ICS places great value on our extra and co-curricular sports, activities, arts, and events which allow us to provide experiential learning opportunities for all our students. 

Forefront in all of our efforts, every day, is providing a safe, respectful, and diverse learning community that values the efforts, contributions, and points of view of all of our community members. Our focus on inclusion and social-emotional well-being supports our belief that all students can learn at high levels, be successful, and contribute to their world.

Join us as we continue ICS’s tradition of academic excellence, personalized learning, exploration of the rich history and culture of Ethiopia, and commitment to being our best with Africa and the World!

We look forward to meeting you!
