Students in Missouri have a unique opportunity to get a jump-start on their careers before they’ve even finished high school, according to a new article from the Site Selection team.
Located in Lee’s Summit, near the Kansas City metropolitan area, The Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC) is an innovative accelerated learning program.
MIC is a partnership between the University of Central Missouri, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, Metropolitan Community College and over 50 corporate partners. The program prepares students to be career-ready graduates in half the time and for significantly less cost.
The program is available to high school students from Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s Summit Technology Academy, which offers STEM-based curriculum and pulls from the district’s 24 high schools. The Summit Technology Academy is in the new 140,000-square-foot, $40-million Missouri Innovation Campus building in Lee’s Summit.
