IIMCA Detention Update!

IIMCA has high expectations of every scholars that steps onto our campus. We aim our expectations so high, because we are determined to prepare your child for the trials and tribulations, that come along with matriculation.

In order to hold our students accountable for their actions, IIMCA will be establishing an after school detention system. Detention will be held every Tuesday,Thursday,& Friday.

Detention will be ran after school, from 2:55 pm, until, 3:55 pm.

Detention will be supervised by professional IIMCA staff members.

Students will be issued detention for reasons including, but not limited to: fighting, uniform violations, being tardy to class, receiving a violation letter.

It is not our goal to be punitive, but it is a reality that, student thrive more in an environment where consequences are issued, when consequences are deserved. If your scholars continues to live up to the expectations of IIMCA, and continues to uphold all pillars of PRIDE, detention should not be a main matter of concern.

Thank you for your continued support of the IIMCA vision.
