For the past 17 years, IDEA has prepared students for success in college and in life. Our approach is different - and it works.
Through small learning groups, technology, one-on-one tutoring, and college counseling, students are supported at the level just right for them.
Our teachers bring subject matter expertise and an unwavering commitment to set each student on a path to success.
Beyond academics, our enrichment programs develop independent, responsible citizens who give back to their communities.
