    IC Catholic Prep is an amazing school. At IC, we offer honors and AP classes, allowing students to test their knowledge. These classes may be rigorous, but it only pushes us to work harder. The teachers at IC are extremely friendly, always having open doors, they are ready to assist any student. Additionally, at IC we are not only active in the classroom, but we are also active outside of the classroom. Whether you are on the field or the stage, there are many ways to get involved. There are many sports where you can develop friendships with your teammates. Furthermore, we have a musical where everyone is involved. Lastly, IC offers many clubs ranging from leadership to service. Many of these clubs are fun ways for students to be involved in the school. In all, IC is a fantastic school which not only fosters students’ education but also helps students be involved in everything the school has to offer.

    One thing I loved about IC were my teachers. The teachers at IC truly care about every individual student and they only want to see the best from you and want to help you become the best version of you. No matter who you are or where you came from, everyone is welcomed with open arms. IC is a family. As far as IC goes, I hope that we add more electives available to the students. For example, I loved my psychology class and I wished there was an AP psychology. Even after talking to some of my friends that go to other schools, I realized they have more electives than IC that they were able to take and I was not. Adding these classes gives IC an even start with competing schools. It also automatically gives the students even more opportunities to grow as an individual through the next four years of their lives.
    Outstanding school with a welcoming family atmosphere. Everyone from the teachers, coaches, parents, staff and administration truly care about seeing the kids succeed. They offer a great learning environment with rigorous class offerings. The academics and athletics are really second to none! You won't find a better private school in such a beautiful, safe and caring community! #KNIGHTPRIDE
