Innovative Programming is
Our Tradition
Many of the students in ICCS have found our specialized study skills, tutoring program and individualization has paved a path to college that they only once dreamed about.

As a direct result of our articulation agreement with Landmark College, Benjamin Hatcher is taking a 3- credit psychology course through their online program. He is already a matriculated student at Duchess Community College and this course is enhancing his experience as he works toward his Associate’s degree.

By individualizing ICCS students' programs, they have endless opportunities to earn college credit, enhance their executive functioning skills, and engage in meaningful internships all while benefiting from the structured environment that will allow them to have a brighter future.
Etkin Environmental Center Becomes a Trailblazer

The activity at the Etkin Environmental Center has been nonstop throughout the year. All ICCS students enrolled in the Environmental Science and Conservation classes have begun a multi-year service learning project designed around sustainability and our environmental center. The ICCS Green Team, made up of student representatives, have taken on the task of educating all students and staff about how to adjust to a greener lifestyle. Students are assisting staff in germinating flowers for both campuses, planting new crops in Northern Harvest greenhouse and planning the spring harvest so that our chefs can create amazing dishes for us to enjoy. Mr. Weidig's construction trades students are contributing to our conservation efforts by building rain catchers to allow us to use recycled rain water to tend to plantings throughout campus. Finally, we will be welcoming students from the local public school to learn about environmental sustainability in our outdoor classroom in May.
