Summer Reading and Assignments

  • Summer Experiences for IA Students 

    At IA, we believe in students actively participating in their own learning. We also believe students work hard during the year and deserve some time to relax and decompress from the previous year.  

    We do know that all learning doesn’t happen in a classroom.  

    The opportunities below are developed for your different courses and will give you the opportunity to experience the subject matter.  

    None of these assignments are required, but we do encourage to explore these opportunities to get a head start on next year and to learn more about the underlying subject matter for each course.
