What do you mean by a Christian School?
IPEKA Integrated Christian School (IICS) has clear goals that our students would be: independent critical thinkers, effective English communicators, prepared members of the global community and academically prepared as lifelong learners. It is our great concern that our students would also be faithful followers of Christ.

To fulfill this goal, IICS employs qualified and experienced teachers. Moreover, every teacher should have active Christian faith that would have a positive impact upon students.

How am I supposed to show my faith in this school?
IPEKA INTEGRATED is a Christian environment. Not only should our teachers  be Christian, we expect them to be actively involved in developing this faith community.

Here are some examples of the involvement:

  • every teacher is expected to lead Bible study groups with students, faculty and staff
  • every teacher will take part in morning devotion, combined services and retreats on a regular basis
  • every teacher will have involvement with a Christian church community
