Welcome to IC Schools
Your interest in Immaculate Conception Catholic Schools shows that your priority is assuring a quality faith-based education for your child. When your son or daughter enters Immaculate Conception Schools (K-8), you may be assured that your child will receive a superior education. IC’s Elementary School (Kindergarten to Grade 6) and IC Academy (Grades 7 and 8), including all day Kindergarten, were characterized by the Accreditation Team from the Michigan Non-Public School Accreditation Association as “an excellent educational opportunity” and that our “teachers promote excellence in all facets of the educational process”.
IC students consistently score well above the national average on the Iowa tests, further confirming these independent findings. The 2013 IOWA test results indicate that our fifth, sixth and seventh graders are achieving over two years past their grade level. For example, our fifth graders are at a seventh grade level for more than two subject areas. The scores throughout all of the grades reflect our schools’ academic excellence and ability to inspire students to achieve at their highest abilities. Our seventh grade class scored highest in Math, higher than any other school in the Archdiocese of Detroit! As you can see, your child will be entering a school where academic excellence is part of the culture. IC is registered with and adheres to the education guidelines of the Detroit Archdiocese Department of Education. Your child will attend a technologically advanced school.
At Immaculate Conception, your child enters a school fully networked and on-line, a computer lab with 30 stations, computers in every classroom with Smart Board/Internet Technology, as well as a modern science laboratory and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. Your child will benefit from dynamic, daily faith formation through religious education.

“Community is at the heart of all Catholic education, not simply as a concept to be taught, but as a reality to be lived. … Your students will learn to understand and appreciate the value of community as they experience love, trust and loyalty in your schools and educational programs, and as they learn to treat all persons as brothers and sisters created by God and redeemed by Christ.”
Spoken by his Holiness, Pope John Paul II, in a speech to elementary, secondary and religious education leaders in New Orleans, Louisiana, September 12, 1987
