Welcome to the secondary section of Kigali International Community School (KICS)! I am so glad that you’ve taken the time to explore our school.
Located in the beautiful and rapidly developing city of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, we are a growing community of learners who seek to impact the world for Christ by providing a high-quality education that is Christ-centered and U.S. accredited. We desire for every KICS graduate to be fully equipped, academically and as a whole person, to attend universities in the U.S., Canada, and around the world.
The KICS secondary student body is a diverse global family with over 20 countries represented. The student learning experience includes a rigorous curriculum with Pre-AP and/or AP offerings in all core subject areas, 1 to 1 devices across all grades, daily world language classes, English Language Learning (ELL), learning support services, and College and Career guidance. We also have many opportunities for extracurricular activities in areas such as sports, the arts, technology, and leadership. In respect to curriculum, KICS is one of the first 15 schools outside of the U.S. to implement the rigorous college preparatory Pre-AP framework and is proud to be an approved AP Capstone Diploma school. Mission groups are a highlight of the KICS student experience. These are small groups of students led by a KICS staff advisor. This group is intended to be a safe place for students to ask questions about life and/or academics, to grow spiritually, and to experience a positive mentor relationship.
Visit our Secondary Academics page to learn more about our curriculum and course offerings as well as our extracurricular activities.
KICS’ secondary faculty consists of highly qualified and experienced educators, almost all of whom are trained in the U.S. or the U.K. With an average of about 10 years of teaching experience, our teachers are not only experts in the subjects they teach, but continually growing in the art of teaching and learning. KICS teachers seek to adapt the curriculum to the students and context, use data to inform instruction, spark curiosity through engaging learning activities, facilitate the development of critical thinking skills, and provide opportunities for students to take ownership of their learning. Additionally, our staff members genuinely care for the well-being of KICS students, often serving as their advocates and mentors. In and outside the classroom, we highly value partnership with parents in the growth of their children.

We hope that as you explore our website, you might encounter the spirit of Christ-centered community and excellence that we seek to cultivate daily. And, that you would consider becoming part of our global family.
Peace of Christ to you,
Secondary Principal, Interim & Director of Teaching and Learning
