This school is named 'Innovation' Central for a reason. We have 4 programs you can choose from:

Academy of Business, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship where you get specific classes that teach you everything about money and business. You can participate in a competition called "DECA" where you can earn scholarships and you learn and study about Marketing, Finance, Hospitality, and Management.

Academy of Design and Construction where you learn about building houses and you even go and build your own home! (For Habitat of Humanity for families in need).

Academy of Modern Engineering where most of the STEM classes are placed. All classes have Math, Technology, Engineering, and Math incorporated. This Academy is in love with going to colleges and giving you as many opportunities it can.

Academy of Health Science and Technology is a place that is revolved in helping you learn everything about medicine and the human body so that you are ready to go into the Medical field when you graduate. You train to be a EMT and you can graduate as a certified EMT.

My experience at Innovation Central High School has been great. The school offers four academies: Business, Health & technology, design & construction, and engineering. As a student there, I have been taking the courses of engineering. We go through the process of basic engineering to actually building them through revit. One thing I would love to change about the school is having sports. This school does not have enough funding for students to be involved in sports and it really bothers a lot of athletes.
Central does a wonderful job of keeping the family atmosphere alive. There are four major academies: health sciences, design and construction, modern engineering, and last but not least business and entrepreneurship. Throughout the last four years of your academic career you are trained and become accustomed to the career field of your choice.
