    It is a wonderful smaller, character building high school where everyone knows your name, you are nurtured/encouraged to participate, engage and be the Best that you can Be! You can explore and learn where your talents and interests lie, develop and grow your skills to have a successful college experience and then career. Once a Knight....Always a Knight theme encourages a family atmosphere that lasts a lifetime! (Need to relinquish the Bigger is better philosophy. ICCP is smaller yet the fit can be just Right!)

    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
    I am a junior at IC Catholic Prep, and I love this school! When I am a senior next year, I will be really sad to leave, because this school is more than a school. IC holds around 350 - 400 students, and because of the small size, IC is a second home. The student body is friendly, the teachers and staff are great, and there are many opportunities that I may never have received if I did not attend IC. There's an array of sports, clubs, and activities that one can participate in and develop his or her personality. Also, as a Catholic school, having that private education is a benefit that many do not receive. I have grown in my religious beliefs and grown as an individual overall. To summarize, I chose the perfect high school for me.
