About ICS

We academically prepare and spiritually equip...

Why ICS?


God’s blessings have enabled us to serve the Wasatch Front since 1982.
We desire to partner with you in order to academically prepare and spiritually equip students to become better servants, leaders, and people of influence for Christ in their homes, cities, nations, and the world. We accomplish this goal by providing licensed, experienced Christian educators throughout our fully accredited Pre-Kindergarten through High School program. ICS provides excellence in teaching as well as a caring Christian community.

ICS is a fully accredited school recognized by both ACSI and NWAC.
This accreditation sets ICS apart from other private schools that may not have met the standards set forth by federal and state education agencies. Many of our teachers have advanced degrees, and all of our staff and faculty embrace the freedom of being able to speak freely about Christ
and the impact a relationship with our Creator has made in our lives.

Thank you for considering ICS as the place to educate your children.
We look forward to working together to create a lasting love of learning and a deepened relationship with Christ.


For a few years, Pastor McClendon, senior pastor of The Evangelical Free Church, in consultation with a few key members of his church, felt a pull to establish a Christian school in the Salt Lake Valley. The need was great to help Christian families come alongside their children to disciple them in the foundations of their faith and helping them witness to those around them in the valley. Much prayer and thought went into what would soon be called Intermountain Christian School. Since 1982, ICS has been providing a solid Christian education along the Wasatch Front. From humble beginnings, Intermountain Christian School built, along with The Evangelical Church of Salt Lake City, its current facility in 1992.

Much has transpired in the 30 plus years since that all important decision was made. ICS has graduated over 400 students and has sent them in a multitude of directions and callings. Some students have gone on to become pastors, some have become lawyers and doctors, and still others have returned to either teach at ICS or be parents of their own ICS students.

Intermountain Christian School is forever grateful to Pastor McClendon and the original school board for their commitment to Christian Education in the Salt Lake Valley.


ICS is a member of the CCSC and ACSI and is accredited through NWAC (AdvancedEd).
