Lyford Cay International School (LCIS) is currently recruiting the best and brightest students in The Bahamas for enrolment in the 2016-17 school year.
Founded in 1962, LCIS is a fully accredited international day school located in western New Providence offering an educational programme that aims to inspire, challenge and transform students. LCIS is the only school in The Bahamas to offer three International Baccalaureate programmes, the PYP, MYP and DP. Upon graduation, LCIS students move on to top colleges and universities around the world, with 100% of students being accepted to their first-choice school.
LCIS is also ensuring that Family Island students are not left out. In keeping with its goal of making an international education accessible to as many Bahamian families as possible, the school conducted an information session at Angels Academy, graciously hosted by Principal Barbara Johnson and faculty, in particular Shelley Roark. LCIS student and Angels’ alumna and former Primary Student of the year Ashley Newel, was part of the group visiting this past Tuesday 17 November. The students and parents gathered at the school watched and informative video and heard about LCIS from Ms Isadora Pinder-Blyden, Head of Elementary School and Ms Rose Marie Taylor, Admissions Director.
Through a generous Financial Aid Programme, LCIS is able to offer substantial assistance to qualified Bahamian students who would otherwise not be able to receive an International Baccalaureate education. LCIS Admissions Director Rose-Marie Taylor believes that the Financial Aid Programme plays an essential role in ensuring that the school’s student population remains diverse: ‘We are able to support a wider range of students which significantly deepens the diversity and quality of our whole school programme.’
LCIS has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years and looks forward to an even greater increase in enrolment and the number of applications received from Bahamian families. The school will shortly be concluding the master-planning process for a new Secondary School campus, which will feature state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities. The planning of the new campus also includes the enhancement of the current campus, which will ensure that students experience the best possible educational environment while at LCIS.
