Mission Statement/Welcome

ICA aims to develop caring and responsible global citizens striving to achieve their full potential through vigorous academic, social and spiritual programs in an inquiry based, inspiring environment that supports the growth of the whole child as a lifelong learner.
"At the International Children's Academy of Beverly Hills, we believe the most effective school environment is a combination of place, purpose and people through which all learning happens: the small school experience, the authenticity of the tasks students are asked to perform and the people, both classmates and teachers, who come together to a shared purpose of educating students to be productive, healthy and happy children today and spiritually directed citizens of tomorrow.

Our International Baccalaureate program offers a thoughtful balance and breadth of challenging experiences for every student. ICA is not just an education; it is a vibrant community that becomes a family. What draws many to the International Children's Academy and what motivates each of us to contribute and carry forward the legacy is the spiritual guidelines upon which it was founded. Characters are forged, futures are framed, lifelong connections are made and the lives of students, faculty and families are forever changed for the good."
