Building a better future: Set to begin educating students in September 2022, Midland Innovation + Technology Charter School (MITCS) will offer students in grades 9 through 12 the chance to pursue areas of personal interest and tackle real-life projects to prepare them for a world of opportunity. This groundbreaking new school will allow students to fulfill state requirements for a high school diploma while also earning certifications, credentials, apprenticeships, college credits, and even associate's degrees in skilled trades, high technology, and other fields of endeavor. MITCS students will graduate prepared to enter the workforce and/or continue on through post-secondary education and training.
By offering authentic, hands-on learning opportunities to a diverse population of students, MITCS will serve as a generator of innovative thinking, deep learning, and collaborative engagement to build better futures.
