IESA Program Description:
The IESA program is committed to educating responsible citizens who will contribute in positive ways to the local and world community. The IESA program is about connecting students to their world today, their future, and to future generations. Through projects students grapple with real-world systems, starting in their local communities. They design solutions to issues such as water and energy use, resource conservation, climate change, clean air, sustainable food and product design, all the while seeking to maximize the health of their communities, social equity, and sustainable economy. Students must encounter the environment in personal ways in order effectively impact change in our world. The overall goal is to ignite a sense of thoughtful and active stewardship in our students.
