ICS is a faith-filled community of families, teachers and friends working together to make the surrounding areas of Westchester, and the world as a whole, a better place through its service of education.
History of School:
Founded in 1911 as a parish school to the Immaculate Conception Church (est. in 1853), the Immaculate Conception School was originally served by the Franciscan Sisters of Hastings. ICS has evolved with the changing times and is now fully staffed by dedicated lay personnel working with the support of The Parish of the Assumption and Immaculate Conception of our Lady and the Central Westchester Archdiocesan Region. ICS is currently under the nurturing guidance of Principal Maureen J. Harten, who has more than 20 years of administrative experience and more than 30 years within the Archdiocese of New York.
One of three schools in the Archdiocese of New York chosen to be part of a Blended Learning pilot program sponsored by “Educate” and St. John’s University. Chrome books in every classroom allow for whole group, small group and individualized instruction to match and elevate the skill level of each child.
