About the Host School

International College (IC) in Lebanon is one of the largest international schools in the world. With over 3,600 students, the school has evolved throughout its long and rich history, dating back to 1891 in south-west Turkey, to an excellent institution, and one in a truly unique setting in the Middle East region and globally. The highest standards of academic and extra-curricular educational opportunities are consistently adhered to, in line with international accreditations and authorizations, such as with the Council of International Schools (CIS), New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) and International Baccalaureate (IB).

Chartered in the State of Massachusetts, US, and abiding by the laws of the Lebanese government, IC remains a nonprofit organization, and one that is proudly independent and non-sectarian. Indeed, IC’s many notable alumni across the world highlight the school’s success, and, as they often remark, it is what the school offered them as a base for their life journey and career achievements, all encapsulated in the ‘IC Spirit’ both during their school days and right up to the present day.
