On August 25, 1986 the charter faculty and staff met for the first time at IMSA. Imagine the scene: No students. No specific curriculum, nor SSL's. No history. Never had a Community Learning Day! No nothing! Only a promise that we would be better than the alternative.

Let’s take a moment right now to share with 2/3 persons sitting near you about what might have been going through your mind and heart if you had been here on that first Community Learning Day in 1986—a little time travel!

Today, we are gathered for our 30th Community Learning Day! Welcome to our 30th year!
