I - Independent: All families of ICARE are wonderfully independent, no two being the same. Our families are independent in ideas, personalities, and lifestyles that are in turn reflected in their chosen way of homeschooling.
C - Christian:ICARE was founded on faith in Jesus Christ. It is from this faith that our group is constantly mindful in all of our relationships within our group and in all related meetings and activities. We trust our Heavenly Father to use His timing and the talents He has given to His children to raise up members to lead, to participate, and to make our group the active ministry that it is.
A - Association:This is an organization that is united in its interest and purpose of educating our children at home.
R - Responsible: The Bible provides direct references as to parental responsibility toward children. It is the ultimate responsibility of parents to provide for their children in such a way that they rise above the standard academically, emotionally, and spiritually.
E - Educators:Along with the gift of being a parent comes many titles – one of being an educator.
