Letter from IC's President

Welcome to the International College’s website.

International College’s vision is to empower the students of today to become the global citizen leaders of tomorrow.

Through our virtual tour, you will discover the exceptional, multilingual, and international education that IC provides its students, as well as gain a feel for its unique ethos: “ The IC Spirit”

Founded in 1891, International College is an extraordinary, K-12, co-ed, secular school that is located on two campuses, one in Ras Beirut and the other in Ain Aar.  Anchored in tradition and a rich history, IC is a dynamic and innovative, educational institution that is moving with confidence and energy toward the future.

I C educates 3600 students from a wide array of backgrounds, who learn and grow together, both intellectually and personally. At IC, students can choose from four different curricula taught either in English or in French: the Lebanese Bac, The College Preparatory Program, the French Bac and the IB. Additionally, every student also learns Arabic. Students are provided with a myriad of extra-curricular activities as well as interscholastic sports and are encouraged to become socially engaged through a robust community service program.

IC teachers and administrators are dedicated and passionate about teaching and learning. They are committed to putting students at the center of the educational process and to fostering a learning environment that is both challenging and supportive.  An IC education inspires young minds to hone their leadership, analytical, and problem-solving skills, as well as to develop empathy, creativity, and character. IC graduates are well equipped to tackle higher education with great success and to become the leaders and agents of positive change in whatever field they choose, be it in Lebanon or abroad.

On behalf of the IC community, we thank you for your interest in our school.

Joel Peinado
President
