Welcome Future Illuminate Scholars!

The ILC uses social-emotional learning to challenge students and develop their leadership skills.
Social-emotional learning is the process through which youth acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.
Students will participate in ice breaker activities, professionally facilitated
classroom learning, excursions, interactive learning, and guest speakers each day.
After all of the learning, we'd like students to have an opportunity to unwind and get to know each other by hosting nightly mixers. Mixers vary from game night to movies under the stars... don't forget the Smores!
