values of life-long learners. Imbued with a sense of excellence, they are driven to maximize their potentials to succeed in their chosen endeavors.
It is a FILIPINO SCHOOL which aims to develop a strong sense of nationalism in the students that leads them to be COMMITTED CITIZENS who are appreciative of their Filipino cultural heritage, loyal to the Filipino nation, and actively involved in building a society where God reigns.
Owing to the distinct heritage of its students, ICA aims to foster in them an appreciation of their Chinese cultural traditions and help them blend these with Filipino traditions.
