We match state-of-the-art online learning technology with the core principles of great education in order to seamlessly mold academics to students’ interests.

Our Core Values, the “6 Ps”

PASSION: The inspiration, interests, and motivation which students choose to pursue

PURPOSE: The focus, goals, and objectives which drive students’ plan and mission

PROCESS: The roadmap of routines and rituals which guide students on the path to success (Plan, Execute, Measure, Correct)

PERSEVERANCE: The resilience, tolerance, and respect for students to overcome obstacles

PERSPECTIVE: The wisdom, support, and guidance for students to learn from the words and actions of others who have been there before and excelled

PERSONALIZATION: The unique, differentiated learning pathways for students to forge their own journey and to demonstrate mastery in their own style

By identifying our students’ PASSIONS, we help them formulate an academic and career centered PURPOSE driven plan. Then, rituals and habits form the best PROCESS to ensure success. Combining the guidance and PERSPECTIVE of world class experts with the values of PERSEVERANCE, resilience and tolerance, all within a PERSONALIZED custom curriculum that ensures maximum development, enjoyment and success. We refer to these as our 6 P’s and they are integrated into the fabric of all ICL Academy programming.

Our grading systems evaluate the various methods students can demonstrate their understanding of the 6 P’s.

Our assessment methods prioritize understanding and learning transfer over outcome.

Our master teachers value students’ understanding of key ideas, as well as the process, approaches, and methods students use to achieve their goals.
