Each Fall, we invite you to experience the IMSA campus and meet your child’s faculty and staff. This year, we can’t be together, but that won’t stop us from being connected. On behalf of IMSA, we are pleased to invite you to our first ever Virtual Parent Day!

Please join us via Zoom (Download the Zoom App Here) and participate as events occur or attend when it is convenient for you. Pop in to your child’s virtual classrooms and meet their teachers, hear from our Parent Association, meet our Principal and College and Academic Counselors, plus learn about IMSA’s flagship SIR Program.
