About ICON Education

ICON is founded by a former international student who has first-hand experience in receiving all kinds of education services. With deep understanding of what parents, students, and schools look for, ICON was established with strong core values: Safety, Respect and Integrity.

Armed with such commitment, ICON has grown a team with international background based in UK and Asia. Our professional team serves schools, parents and students who need trustworthy partnerships, guardianship care, and accurate counselling advice.

In its 10th year, ICON has…

  • provided guardianship services to over 600 students
  • developed a network of select, top ranking UK Day Schools and Boarding Schools
  • grown trustworthy host family network across the UK.
  • designed and delivered summer and winter programmes.
  • supported parents in choosing and applying to the right schools.
