A Message from President Sister Diane Aruda, O.P.

 

Welcome to a new school year!
Smiling faces and activities bring light and joy
to our campus. Faculty and staff are eager
to welcome our students and their families.

Every Girl Matters within the school community of ICA!


 
M.A.P.S.

 

From July 18th to August 8th, the halls and classrooms at ICA were filled with 93 new students in training to enter the workplace. Our training curriculum is called M.A.P.S.: Motivation, Attitude, Professionalism, and Skills. Through this two-week program, our incoming Frosh class and transfer students woh are new to our Corporate Work Study Program learn the essentials to be successful in the office. Some of the skills our team introduces and practices with each student are Microsoft Word, Excel, phone etiquette, scanning, eye contact, firm handshake, and how to have a professional conversation. Our goal is to develop confident young women who are capable of exceling in both the workplace and school. These two weeks are a special time of bonding and learning that start the year on an exciting and energetic note. The training ended with a luncheon celebrating students and their mentors.


 
Class of 2018

 

We're off to another exciting start here in the Admissions Center. We're proud to welcome the incoming class of 2018, who are already wow-ing us with their enthusiasm and energy! These newest additions to the Spartan family were officially welcomed by their sisters at our welcome assembly, putting us at a total of 302 total students.
