Become a Member Hello and Welcome from ICNS

Mission

OUR MISSION IS TO BE AN ADVOCATE FOR NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS

 

ICNS is the voice of nonpublic education in Illinois, ensuring that policy and advocacy agencies are monitored and give a voice as funding and regulations are formulated downstate. We at ICNS are committed to continue our strong advocacy for Illinois nonpublic schools locally, in Springfield and nationally through our work with the Council of American Private Education (CAPE).




Are you a member of Team ICNS? If not, the time to join is now. Whether you are a school leader, Board member, parent, grandparent, alumni, or even a student of a private school in Illinois – it will take all of us to regain the local control of our schools. We’ve witnessed more state involvement in recent years than ever before, and it’s time to unite our efforts. Please take a few minutes to watch this video and then be sure to register your school with ICNS. Join Team ICNS!
