Objectives of the institution
The INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL is a private, co-educational school which offers an educational program from pre-kinder through twelfth grade for students of all nationalities. The school was founded in September, 1977 because of a need for an English- speaking Christian school in San Josť - Costa Rica. The school follows a stateside schedule: classes are in session from mid-August until mid-December and from mid-January until the end of May.
The school is recognized by the Association of International Christian Schools in the United States and is also accredited by the Costa Rican Ministry of Education and conforms to their standards for class "B" which is the English language school category.
Students may choose whether they want to be listed with the Ministry of Education and/or to receive credits as for any school in the United States. Consideration should be given to the following:
Pre-kinder and kindergarden: 8:00- 12:00pm
Preparatory and Grades: 1-12: 8:00- 2:55pm
The Christian-based curriculum is comparable to most private, college- preparatory schools with the objective to develop in each student a maximum proficiency in language arts, an active proficiency in the Spanish language, and a sound understanding in the areas of math, science, and social studies. In addition to the strong academic program, the school offers an elective program in the following: art, typing, computer, guitar, SAT math/verbal, Writers Workshop, newspaper, yearbook etc. Physical Education and Bible are required. English as a second language courses prepare students to enter the regular classes if their mother tongue is not English or if their English is not sufficient to succeed in the regular classroom situation. Team sports such as basketball, volleyball and soccer are coached by our staff after school. Students are required to maintain an average of 76 or better and a satisfactory conduct grade in every class in order participate in the sports program.
The INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL is a non-profit religious association under the direction of a Board of Directors currently headed by Dr. William J. Tabor.
