PRINCIPAL DISPATCH
Dear ICCP Families and Friends,

Today, the Class of 2020 concludes their high school careers at IC Catholic Prep. However, we know that your Knight experience will live on with each of you as you go forward as the newest class of the League of Knights—our alumni association. Once a Knight, Always a Knight.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020. In August 2019, at the beginning of this academic year, none of us would have anticipated these would be the circumstances under which we would be celebrating your accomplishment. Our school community is made up of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends who know what it means to be determined and resilient in the face of obstacles. We strive toward our goals by adapting and innovating. We reach out for help when we need it and support one another when we see someone who could use a helping hand. I could not be more proud of what you have accomplished during this unprecedented time of COVID-19. You have earned all the glory that comes with it!

Graduation is a truly special time. We look forward to having you participate in person with us in July to celebrate this degree and to celebrate this moment in person. You are part of a historical graduating class. You’ll always hold a special place in the heart of our school, parish, and for me as your principal. We believe in you and all you can do with your IC Catholic Prep diploma!


Tentative dates for the graduation ceremony and other related senior events are scheduled. Download this week's FAQs [PDF] for answers to more questions about grading, independent work days for students and the status of events and activities.

Annual Fund
Each year the ICCP Annual Fund bridges the gap between the tuition collected and the actual cost to educate a student. Last year due to the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends of ICCP, we raised over $150,000. This year, with anticipated budget impacts due to the economic downturn, our need is even greater.

Second Semester Grades

How will 2nd Semester grades be determined?
Semester grades will be determined using the 3rd quarter and 4th quarter grades averaged together. The 3rd quarter will be worth 60% and the 4th quarter 40% of the final semester grade. ( Download Grade Chart PDF )

What will be used for the 2nd Semester grading scale?
For the 2nd semester, we will use the grading scale of A, B, Pass, and Incomplete. In essence, any semester C and D grade (70-84) will be replaced with a P and receive a GPA credit of a 2.3. An “A” (93-100) will carry a 4.25 GPA credit and a “B” (85-92) will carry a 3.25 GPA credit.

When will semester grades be posted?
Semester Grades will be posted on May 22 for Seniors and May 29 for Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors. If a student receives an incomplete, they will have until June 5 th for Seniors and June 12 th for Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors to make up missing work to improve their grade before it becomes an “F”.
