Our Promise @Ichthus Schools

Ichthus Schools prepares students to strive for excellence in a global

society and to glorify God through their daily walk. 

Ichthus Schools was established in 2001. 20 years ago (during this writing), when the founding director, Mrs SeeMun Suparno prayed earnestly in search of a school for her son, she was inspired by a vision to start a school, with the objective to teach students the way of the the Lord. The founding partners envisioned a school unlike others with the vision to transform the lives of every single student, to become the best version of who they can be, to find their God given talent and to use it to serve others. And thus the vision,

"For whoever comes to have a Transformed life"

Ichthus School Vision

“We believe that all students grow and develop in their individual ways and that as educators it is our privilege to impart knowledge, biblical values and ability to discern right from wrong in leadership, in action and in communication. In addition as educators, it is our duty to prepare students to live a Christian life in a global society.”  

Ichthus School Mission

Personal transformation happens through developing a relationship with Christ. In a safe and conducive environment for student’s growth, we help your children discover and nurture their God-given talents, through strong academics anchored on Biblical foundations. Our teachers, strong in their faith, qualified and passionate, will willingly go the extra mile for our students.
