ICSAtlanta is a charter school (public school) authorized by the State Charter Schools Commission, offering Kindergarten through 8th grade to all Georgia students. All students experience dual-language immersion education in French, German, Mandarin, or Spanish (50% in K-5 and 33% in 6-8) All students benefit from experiential, inquiry-based learning in a rigorous, nurturing educational environment.
ICSAtlanta has two buildings. The Lower Campus serves grades K-3rd, and the Upper Campus serves grades 4th-8th.
This tuition-free, unique educational opportunity fosters an international perspective in our students while at the same time meeting current Georgia Education Standards. By encouraging critical thinking and intellectual curiosity in an engaging environment that intentionally celebrates international discovery, we are helping to create tomorrow's leaders.
Our mission: We strive to prepare students for a successful future by promoting academic excellence through rigorous instruction that includes multilingualism, cultural awareness, respect, and tolerance for others. We utilize both dual-language and cultural immersion to nurture student curiosity into compassion for others and a commitment to improve our world. Furthermore, we employ student-centered teaching to create actively engaged, lifelong learners.
Our multi-language program includes language immersion education for all students. ICSAtlanta teachers are required to possess native or near-native proficiency in the target language they teach. ICSAtlanta offers dual-language immersion and language instruction in French, German, Mandarin, and Spanish.
All students learn core subjects and receive a portion of instruction in English daily. Our methodology is proven to work. ICSAtlanta's students continue to outperform Georgia students on the GA Milestones while learning additional languages.
