About Us

The International Community School, Abuja was founded in 1998 with a vision to provide a Christian international education for both the expatriate and Nigerian community. From a humble beginning of just eight students it has grown to become a full early years, elementary and secondary school of over 500 students from approximately 40 countries.


History of the School

ICS began in 1998 with a modest beginning of only eight students and three teachers. The school grew slowly but steadily, adding classrooms and other facilities until by 2012 there was no more room for expansion on the first site. ICS became a member of the Council of International Schools, Principal’s Training Center and other educational agencies and became accredited locally with the Abuja DQA, the agency responsible for accrediting private schools. It was fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Middle States Association (MSA) in 2006 and reaccredited in 2017. As the first site could no longer accommodate the number of students seeking admission, in August 2013 the school was moved to its present site, a spacious campus where it accommodates over 500 students in classes from Play Group through 12th Grade. Over 40 countries are now represented in the school and there is provision for three arms of each grade level.
