Invest collegiate imagine was truly a life changing experience. From the moment I transferred in my sophomore year, it was like I was in an entirely different world. The small class sizes allowed for close relationships with both students and teachers. The small school population meant I wasn’t just a number anymore. I felt more seen by my peers and teachers and because of this I developed some of the best friendships and connections I’ve ever had. I even won prom queen! It was a complete 180 from being a fish in the sea of my previous public schooling to one of the pack, knowing that my role and my actions truly made a difference in the environment around me. I made so many friends and overcame a large depressive spell all thanks to what I consider the best school in Asheville. I will never forget what ICI did for me, and I am always encouraging others to enroll themselves or their friends and family. It will truly change your life.

My grandsons have been at ICI for 5 years and I can tell you that the level and quality of education is outstanding! The teachers and staff are dedicated to teaching each child the basics of course yet they teach them to be respectful, inclusive and kind to their class mates & teachers. Every day is a good experience not just an education.
I am a new elementary parent at ICI. I’ve not had any bad experiences with staff, policies or communication. My daughter feels loved and safe at school (as do I). My daughter is being challenged by her teachers daily. On of my favorite things about this school is that they do community service projects! It’s a great time for kids to learn about others. It has many opportunities for you to serve the school whether it be a classroom volunteer or serving at an out of school event. Don’t be worried about space. It is sort of an open plan but the kids adapt within the first week. This is a temporary building until they get permanently moved around 2019-2020.
