Bring a Friend to the ILC

The Innovative Learning Center welcomed more than 700 students already this school year. The goal of the ILC is to offer unique learning experiences for students in 7th-12th grade. These experiences all derive from our four networks, Young Professionals, College Jumpstart, Imagination, and the Personal Success Network.

Last week, students from Davidson, Darby and Bradley attended Bring a Friend to the ILC. The students were given a tour of the ILC and Annex. Director of Innovation Brent Wise welcomed the students and then Academy EDU students shared their experiences with the group and answered questions. Preparing students to be Ready for Tomorrow means giving them information and access to all the opportunities available here in the Hilliard City Schools.
