Can my child apply to college after graduating from ISCA?

After graduation, students will not meet the entrance requirements to attend a four-year university. They’ll first need to attend a two-year or community college in order to meet those entrance requirements.

When your child graduates, they will have a valid diploma received from a state-approved publicschool. With that diploma come all the records required for the two-year or community college application process: valid transcripts, public school SAT/ACT scores, teacher recommendations, school extracurricular activities, a student portfolio, and culminating project.

Does ISCA provide McKinney-Vento/homeless assistance and supports?

According to section 725(2) of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11434a(2)), the term “homeless children and youths”—

  • (A) means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence…; and
  • (B) includes—
    • (i) children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster care placement;
    • (ii) children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
    • (iii) children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
