Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today — especially in science, technology, engineering, and math. -Barack Obama


ICP Teams is a private educational company that focuses on students who are readying themselves for college during the high school years. Our program helps them to be fully prepared for acceptance into the college of their choice by exceeding the requirements of each college that fosters their interests and provides their major while in high school. It is vital that students start preparing for college as early as 8th and 9th grades. We accept students who maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher during their high school years of eighth through twelfth grades. We begin counseling services once the student enters the eighth grade so that they start high school ready to excel in the specified areas for their field of study. We help direct each student into a field and major that best suits them that will ensure they become successful in their career of choice. Our main focus is in the S.T.E.A.M. fields, which includes Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.

Experience You Can Trust

Our counselors have over 30 years of experience. We help each student explore all financial aid opportunities available so that they can enroll in college with little personal expense. Also, included in the program for our selected students is unlimited tutoring, test preps, and a personal scholarship from our company upon successful graduation with a GPA of 4.0 or higher.

To help the next generation make guided, wise decisions by pursuing the career best suited for their unique interests, personalities, and capabilities. We assist by ensuring their expectations of salary and living conditions, such as desired location are met. Our services are unique in that we offer everything they need to succeed. We guide them in enrolling and excelling in high school curriculums that will far exceed the requirements of the college or university they desire to attend. By the time they are ready for college, we ensure there are no stones unturned in the area of academics, financial aid, and the process involved in getting them accepted into the school of their choice. They will enter college fully prepared at the lowest out of pocket cost available.


"It Takes a Community"

I’m sure you’ve heard the statement that it takes a community to raise a child. We, at ICP TEAMS, like to consider ourselves as being the community your child needs to excel in school and college. We place top priority on offering our students the necessary tools and guidance needed for them to receive a proper and well-rounded education. As a parent, your support in helping them reach their full potential is vital in leading them to succeed in life. Upon enrolling your child into our program, we consider you family, and we will not only help your child succeed, but we will be here to help you support them in any service we offer as well.

Why a S.T.E.A.M. college planning company, like ICP TEAMS?

Focusing on your area of desired majors should begin as early as possible. By beginning your focus before entrance into high school, you will be more prepared and less stressed when it comes time to apply for your college of choice. We will help you enroll in the proper classes early on so you won’t be forced to cram extra classes into your already busy schedule. Another important factor in planning for college is using your high school years productively, and not wasting precious class time on courses you don’t need for your course of study. We will be here every step of the way to ensure you make the proper educational choice, and we are available if you need tutoring in any of the STEAM classes. So much has changed from previous generations to students in today’s generation, and this will only progress into future generations as well.
