The International College of the Cayman Islands earns reaccreditation; 35 years of continuous international accreditation. The International College of the Cayman Islands has achieved another major win for its students this year, by being re-accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). This means that students earning degrees at ICCI are assured that ICCI meets or exceeds international standards in all of its academic programs.
The ICCI experience is like no other. We are laser focused on preparing students for launching their careers or enhancing their careers. The College works with employers in each of our degree programs to determine what are the knowledge, skills, and professional values that make their employees successful, then we engineer degree programs to meet those recommendations.
Students at the International College of the Cayman Islands have donated $600 to buy new books for three primary school libraries. The fundraising project is part of a new community service venture at the college. Students went to the three schools – Savannah Primary, George Town Primary, and Bodden Town Primary – to donate the money and talk to the children about the importance of reading. “This is an extraordinary gesture,” said George Town Primary PTA President Cheyenna Stewart. “I was in the middle of ordering more books for the library and this contribution from ICCI students came just in time.

ICCI raising Academic StandardsThe new president of the International College of the Cayman Islands has an unusual ambition for his first few years at the helm – fewer graduates.

More than 60 students graduated from three programs at the International College of the Cayman Islands in a recent graduation ceremony. Families and friends gathered at the Cayman Islands Baptist Church on Feb. 20, to celebrate a milestone for 62 students of ICCI, who graduated with various levels of degrees and achievements.
