The staff believes that students who choose to attend the Academy are committed to developing their personal and social skills along with the academic talents. The residence halls are places where living and learning meet. It is there that each student will meet new and different people, encounter new ideas and differing values, and test the student’s self-discipline. Students will find the residence halls are places where all of the elements of the IMSA community fuse. A student’s acceptance to attend the Academy constitutes an agreement on his/her part to actively support the Academy’s expectations. Community success will depend on the cooperative efforts of all.
Educational Priority: At the culmination of the residential experience, students will be independent and responsible individuals who demonstrate sustainable, equitable, and ethical practices in their current and future communities.
