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. In the 2013-2014 school year ICSA relocated to its 5.3 hectare purpose-built facility and began with an enrollment of over 180 students.
The school is operated by the International Community School of Abidjan Association, a non-profit association formed in accordance with Ivorian law. The United States Embassy in Côte d’Ivoire is recognised as the Founding Sponsor of the School. The Board of Directors is composed of nine members, chosen from the regular and honorary members of the Association, at least five of whom shall be elected. The Founding Sponsor may appoint up to two voting members to the Board. The Board oversees the governance and direction of the school by holding regular meetings, retreats, and being actively involved in Committee work.
