"It is a pleasure to present you with a report on the highly successful first year at The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. As residents of Illinois, we have been fortunate to witness a dream become a reality

Members of the Academy Board of Trustees represent business, education, and the private sector, all of whom have an interest in promoting the economic development of Illinois. We believe that for Illinois businesses to compete and be effective in global markets, they must be highly innovative and adaptable. The leadership necessary to achieve this goal can be attained through the training and nurturing of the state's best minds, while encouraging and fostering the education of all citizens.

It demonstrates to businesses and industry that Illinois is committed to excellence in education.
