Immaculate Conception Academy, Dasmariñas (ICA Dasmariñas) is a private, nonsectarian educational institution in Dasmariñas, Cavite, the Philippines. It is owned and managed by the school board of directors.

History[edit]

Immaculate Conception Academy, Inc., Dasmariñas, Cavite was first organized in October 1947. It opened its first classes of 1st year and 2nd year high school education in June 1948 with a total of 67 students. The first classrooms were held at the church convent of the Immaculate Conception Parish Church of Dasmariñas. Later, the school acquired a vacant lot adjacent to the church and built its first two-story building in 1956. In 1979, a 2-hectare (4.9-acre) lot in Ibayo was acquired and a building was built to facilitate the Industrial Arts and Physical Education classes. This is also the site for Vocational education.

A one-story building was also rented near the plaza, which was used as the school office, canteen and one room, but it was eventually demolished. For that matter, the school decided to add third, fourth and fifth floors on the original ICA building, which is now the ICA-SHS. In June 1992, ICA preschool was created following the Montessori system of teaching. Its location is at Pasong Lawin, Dasmarinas, Cavite. Today, ICA has four campuses in Dasmariñas: ICA North in Salitran, ICA West on Amuntay Road, ICA South on Governor's Drive and ICA Science in Poblacion.
