Give the Gift of An Education

The neighborhood surrounding ICS in downtown Los Angeles is one of the poorest in Southern California. While the vast majority of children who attend ICS live in poverty, Immaculate Conception School advances over 90 percent of our students to private secondary schools, and over 90 percent of our graduates find their way to attendance at a university or college. (To put this in perspective the average college attendance in the USA is closer to 40 percent.) The opportunities for, and pathway to, a brighter future begins here for the children we serve. Pre-School through Middle School years at ICS provide a vital, quality education founded in the teachings of God’s love.

For more information, or if you are interested in joining the Empowering Success Circle, please contact Mrs.Betsy Lopez, Front Office by phone at (213) 382-5931, or email at blopez@ics.la.org.  

Consider Joining our Empowering Success Circle and Give the Foundational Gift of Education to a Child in Need

ICS Empowering Success Circle (ESC) Members pledge their academic sponsorship of a child or children in need for a five year period.  Through their commitment of sponsorship it allows the school to more accurately forecast resources available to children and families in need within our community. ICS Empowering Success Circle Members’ academic sponsorship follows the same child and/or children over the five year period.  Twice a year members receive letters from the children so that they can follow their progress and witness the difference they are making in the child’s or children’s lives. Through being an ICS ESC Member you are making a choice to be a part of the child’s journey and providing them with the tools to live more fully, joyfully and to become adults with service, love and peace in their hearts.

Knowledge is liberating, Wisdom is enlightening. You are providing both.
