The Academy for Innovative Studies seeks to provide a non-traditional learning environment for students in grades 9-12 who may have experienced challenges in traditional schools. Students are referred to AIS by their district school and have the opportunity to graduate with a Core 40 Diploma as well as college credits and workplace certifications. We aim to help every individual student learn by helping them to discover their potential for academic success. Our mission is to prepare students for college and careers by creating an innovative, differentiated place of learning. We believe that positive relationships have the power to change lives.
