Abidjan Côte D'Ivoire
International Community School of Abidjan

Thank you for considering International Community School of Abidjan.


Several diplomatic families associated with the US Embassy in Cote d'Ivoire founded the International Community School of Abidjan (ICSA) in 1972. Growing from humble beginnings, ICSA was located in villas for several years in Cocody and Deux Plateau, residential communities in Abidjan. It was not until 1989, when ICSA moved to Riviera III, that it developed “purpose built facilities”, which permitted a larger enrollment and the development of a comprehensive PreK-12 program. During the 2002 – 2003 school year, ICSA experienced the largest enrollment in its history only to downsize to less than 100 students by February of 2003, due to civil conflict.
