Welcome to International Charter School of Trenton

International Charter School of Trenton was created to provide a quality elementary education for Trenton City residents. We serve grades kindergarten  through fourth.      




  • ICST will stay closed until the Governor allows us to reopen.

    Governor Murphy's Executive Order No. 104 and again in Executive Order No. 107 very clearly states that all 'public, private, and parochial preschool programs premises, and elementary and secondary schools, including charter and renaissance schools, SHALL REMAIN CLOSED TO STUDENTS AS LONG AS THE EXECUTIVE ORDER REMAINS IN EFFECT.

  • ICST closed for two weeks.

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    Out of an abundance of caution, and in consultation with local public health, ICST will close in order to curb the potential transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Schools will be closed through March 27 and children should stay home.

    We understand this action may pose added hardship for some of our families. Please refer to Class Dojo or call us at 609-394-3111 for support and information.

    While your student(s) remains home, we encourage you to continue practicing good hygiene, which includes:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed
    • Avoid close contact with people who are
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and
    • Get vaccinated for the flu is you have not already

    If you feel for any reason your child may have or has been exposed to the novel coronavirus, please contact your doctor immediately. Virus symptoms can range from mild to severe and could include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms may appear in a few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

    ICST is in the process of determining what options we have for our students to continue learning while the school is closed, so please begin using the take home packets.  If you don’t have one, call us at 609-394-3111.

    We will remain in close contact with the Mercer County Office of Education and local public health officials throughout the duration of this closure and will provide updates to families as appropriate.

    We encourage you to stay informed of the situation by regularly checking updates from Class Dojo and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

    We understand this is a time of uncertainty and concern. We will work through this together to keep our students, families, and staff safe.

    If you have health-related questions, please contact Mrs. Olivieri. If you have questions about our school, please contact Ms. Benford. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
