Admissions

Your first step to the International Christian School of Cascais

Thank you for your interest in our school. We are delighted to share our school community with you, and our website is a great place to start to explore all that the International Christian School of Cascais offers.

The International Christian School of Cascais does not have an enrollment period. As we work with small groups, students will be admitted until the class is full, and enrollments are accepted year-round.  

Students who move on from the previous year will have priority in renewing their enrollment over new enrollments. 

Students of all cultures, ethnicities, religions, countries of origin and educational experience are welcome.

At the International Christian School of Cascais, we encourage every family to explore the possibility of an ICSC experience regardless of financial circumstances. We understand that the cost of attending an independent school requires making a significant investment in your child’s education and future. Recognizing that every situation is unique, we are committed to working with each family to find ways to make an ICSC education a reality.

Distance Learning Students

Lessons are being conducted at the ICSC school campus while we are still safely able to do so. However, for students who are unable to attend the classes, they have full access to our online classes to ensure that no student will fall behind on their studies.

Safety Measures and Precautions

ICSC’s contingency plan is fully prepared and aside from remaining in close contact with the Health Authorities, we strictly adhere to all Health Authorities safety guidelines and recommendations.  We have increased and enhanced hygiene practices and movement around the school building is reduced and conditioned.
