If your child is in PK – 5th grade, you will need to take either “Growing Kids God’s Way”or Shepherding A Child’s Heart. These are 15-18 week parenting courses and you need to have completed or at least be enrolled in one of them within the first semester at ICS. If your child is in 6th – 12th grade, you are required to read and answer questions about one of two parenting books. The choices are “Reaching the Heart of Your Teen” or Age of Opportunity. This needs to be completed within the first semester at ICS. After completing these requirements, please let the Family Education Department know so that we can record it in our files.
You are required to earn 5 FEUs per school year. Each hour of instruction equals one FEU. You may take FEUs outside of the school, but they will need to be approved for credit by the Family Education Director.

No, that decision is up to you as the parent/teacher(s). You can use the ICS academic curriculum or choose curriculum that you feel is the best choice for your children and family. Your lesson plans should be your own. You are the one developing the lessons specifically for your home school. The academic lesson plans are available to you online to use as a framework but are designed for the academic program, not for a full-time home school. Curriculum counseling is available for all PSC families through the PSC Director.
Yes, PSC students are encouraged to participate in the age appropriate athletic programs at ICS. In addition to participation in athletics, the students are eligible to participate in the E-Zone program, and PSC families are highly encouraged to participate in school-wide events. PSC students are required to participate in Field Day and fundraising events. The PSC program also holds field trips and activities throughout the year.
No, the fee structure for E-Zone includes two options. Students who come for the entire day pay the entire tuition amount, and those who choose not to go to the RDV have a tuition discount for that.
E-Zone is only available to those families who are a part of ICS, either in the academic program or in Private School Covering.
