Student Academies

MIIE Student Academies

MIIE academies for high school students are designed upon request from educational institutions and offer tailored learning opportunities to prepare students to take responsibility of their learning at the post-secondary level. MIIE will work with your institution to customize a schedule that meets your educational goals as well as your students' needs.
