Senior News

  • The 2020-21 School year is under way! With that comes the transition for most Seniors from a traditional 7 block day to spending half their time in the Milan Center for Innovation Studies (‘MCIS’). The Senior MCIS Experience is a unique one, designed for the senior year, with an emphasis on the development of 21st century skills. Students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills within a project-based learning culture working toward career and college readiness. While participating in the MCIS program, students work in teams on predesigned projects, and student created projects that either present ideas for solving real world problems or create a product that addresses a target market. Internships, influential speakers, business partnerships, technology integration, and effective communication are all an emphasis in the center. We look forward to the Students embracing the change and the challenge of Project Based Learning (‘PBL’) and settling into the new routine.  For more information regarding the MCIS visit: ; and for downloadable important documents visit:

    I am look forward to working with the Class of 2021 both collectively and individually throughout the year!  And, seeing them cross the stage in June.

    The Net Price Calculator is a tool that you can use to estimate your “net price” to attend a particular college or university.  Net price is the difference between the “sticker” price (full cost) to attend a specific college, minus any grants and scholarships for which you may be eligible.  Sticker price includes direct charges (tuition and fees, room and board) and indirect costs (books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses).
