October 2nd-6th is college week here at ISD! 

What is College Week?

A week where the ISD High School celebrates higher education through visiting university representatives, teacher hosted informational sessions on the college they attended, presentations on how to choose the best fit in a college, and a school wide promotion of higher education. This week is all about getting our students to think about university and explore schools in places they may not have thought about before. 

We have two visiting schools on the ISD campus during college week with presentation options for both students and parents. 

Northern Kentucky University:

Student Presentation - Monday Oct 2, 11:25 am, ISD PAC

You know the kind of place that offers a comfortable, safe, energetic learning environment - a place that will get the most out of you and mold you into a person who will shape the future? 

We're that kind of place. 

Welcome to Northern Kentucky University, a growing metropolitan university of more than 15,000 students served by more than 2,000 faculty and staff on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati. Located in the quiet suburb of Highland Heights, Ky. - just seven miles southeast of Cincinnati - we have become a leader in Greater Cincinnati and Kentucky by providing a private school education for a fraction of the cost. While we are one of the fastest growing universities in Kentucky, our professors still know our students' names. And while growth in numbers and reputation is wonderful, we are not satisfied with this success. 

We want more. 

University of British Columbia:

Student Presentation - Monday Oct 2, 11:50 am ISD Library
Parent and Student Presentation - Sunday Oct 1, 2:00pm Radisson Blu Dakar
