General School Mission

"Iowa Christian Academy is committed to raising generationsof leaders committed to Christ,
trained as His disciples, educated in a God-honoring, traditional education system,
emphasizing biblical values, morals, character and integrity
Iowa Christian Academy’s (ICA) Early Education Center offers an accredited preschool taught by licensed, certified Christian teachers, as well as an after-school care program.

ICA combines academic excellence, with a loving Christian environment to provide an early education experience that prepares students for success in primary school and beyond.

ICA’s preschool staff is committed to working with parents to equip preschoolers to embrace the everlasting love of Jesus Christ. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum engages students in multi-sensory activities. They are in a positive environment that promotes self-governance and problem solving. The goal is to meet the intellectual, physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our students
