Island Christian Academy was established by Generations in 2012, as the fruition of a long-held dream of the Small World Christian Kindergarten community for a Primary School founded on the same vision, mission, and values as the kindergarten. Generations successfully proposed to the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong to develop and operate a school at their vacant building on 70 Bridges Street, Sheung Wan in 2011, and launched in the 2012-13 school year with a cohort of graduates from Small World and the wider community.
Over the past 8 years, IslandCA has established itself as a thriving educational community in the heart of Hong Kong Island. The school is operated and managed by Generations, through a formal collaboration with the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong. Island Christian Academy offers quality education through values-based teaching—encompassing the academic, spiritual, socio-emotional and physical facets of all our students. We educate and nurture our students by instilling in them the courage to explore the unique and miraculous talents that God has given each of them.
Island Christian Academy is an Accredited Member of the Council of International Schools and an International Primary Curriculum Accredited School.
Coming up in 2022-23
Island Christian Academy will continue to be managed by Generations Christian Education on the 70 Bridges site until the close of the 2021/2022 school year, when the ten-year agreement with the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong comes to an end.
The Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong, the current school sponsoring body, will operate and manage a school at the 70 Bridges Street site from August 2022 under new leadership and with a new school name.
