Annual Giving Campaign

For 20 years, Innovation Academy's greatest strength has been partnerships with families. Together, we help students develop into lifelong learners who 
think criticallycommunicate effectively, and work collaboratively.  In addition to the many ways families support our students, your financial support allows the school to hire exceptional people, equip and update our classrooms, and enhance our extracurricular offerings.  IACS spends only 0.03% of its administrative budget on fundraising -- we keep it lean so your gifts will directly impact student learning. 

Please enjoy the reflections below from some of the first IACS families, and consider making a year-end gift to help us continue our journey together. Thank you!

Reflections from the past 20 Years at IACS

 "The support of student families is the backbone of our success at IACS. Throughout its 20 years, it has always been about students, their families and staff working together to address the needs of the whole child. When those needs are met, students are able to engage in the process of building the skill set to be productive contributors in their communities and enjoy learning, The goal is to instill a curiosity for learning that will last a lifetime."

“Murdoch Middle School ignited my academic curiosity and will to work hard, inspiring me to seek academic rigor in high school and college. It is also an exceptionally nurturing and supportive place and one where I had true adult mentors. My teachers, many of whom now represent the core of IACS, set a standard for investing in students and remain influential in my life to this day.
