The all-girls campus at ICA allows for more opportunities — academic, leadership and athletic — for each student. ICA students express themselves freely and thrive in the school's unique nurturing environment. The best way to see what an all-girls school is like, however, is to visit the ICA campus.
ICA is looking for quality students who demonstrate the capability to handle a rigorous academic program and extracurricular activities and have the maturity to be good employees within our Corporate Work Study Program.
All students and their families interested in ICA are encouraged to visit us. Tours and information sessions are offered Wednesday afternoons. Please call for an informational package or to schedule a tour.
All ICA students are expected to wear a uniform. At school, they have the options of a skirt/kilt, black or khaki pants, white polos and ICA black vests or cardigan sweaters. CWSP uniforms follows the same guidelines with the exception of a skirt.
A group of four students make up a team to share a full time job position, Monday through Friday. Students rotate work days (see chart below), totaling five full days a month. Work day hours and academic schedules are structured to enable work without students missing classes. The jobs are entry-level work opportunities in professional office settings. To see where ICA students are working, take a look at the school's list of current sponsors.
All students are chaperoned to and from the work site either by van, BART, or walking. On work days, students begin and end their day at ICA to have more of a connection with the school and for attendance reasons.
The summer before classes begin, students will attend a two-week of intensive job skills training at ICA, called "MAPS", to acquire the skills needed for successful corporate experiences. Work-site orientation and training will be provided at the actual job sites.
