A BRIEF HISTORY OF INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE

 

AN INTRODUCTORY OVERVIEW.

Lebanon has been savaged by civil war and repeated Israeli attack for over fifteen devastating years. Practically everything has been disrupted or come to a standstill: social, political and economic life and – most important of all for the future – schools.  In the midst of this chaos one of the few bright rays of hope is International College. This college continues to offer sound, non-sectarian education and to prepare the threatened youth of Lebanon and the Middle East to build the challenging new, more peaceful and better world which all yearn for – especially in embattled Lebanon. Hard pressed Lebanese value good education as never before. They and their children, their teachers and administrators daily take great risks, sometimes with their very lives, to seek and provide the kind of fine education available at International College.
