Our Mission

The mission of Icahn Charter Schools is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting. Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.

Mr. Jeffrey Litt, Superintendent

Icahn 3 Lottery

Families must fill out and submit a brief application, providing basic information about the student, to each charter school they are interested in attending. Applications must be submitted by April 1 each year*. Students are admitted according to the number of seats available.

If a charter school receives more applications than it has seats available, then the school is required by law to run a randomized lottery to admit students. All students who submitted an application will automatically be entered in the admissions lottery. Applicants whose names are not drawn in the lottery are placed on a waiting list and may be contacted as seats become available.

In Loving Memory Of Daniel Garcia Deputy Superintendent

Big picture

With Profound Sorrow

Ladies and Gentlemen:


It is with profound sorrow that I announce the passing of our beloved Deputy Superintendent, Daniel Garcia, on the afternoon of Thursday, June 4, 2020. “Danny” was very much loved by all those who were blessed to work with him. After a highly successful career as a teacher, AP and principal in district 8, I asked him to replace me as a principal of Icahn 1, as I began to design our new schools. After recognizing his great dedication and wisdom, I asked him to serve as Deputy Superintendent. Almost instantly, we became strong colleagues and friends We shared a vision of success for our students. We believed that for teachers to be successful, they must receive ongoing professional development, support and confidence.


Danny respected everyone and all those who came into contact with him, respected him. This is a tremendous loss for all of us. We must believe that his gentle smile, his encouragement and his wonderful nature will look down on all of us as we continue to serve and love. May G-d rest his soul.
