WELCOME TO THE IGNITE INSTITUTE
A “care first, then teach” approach empowers students to go beyond traditional textbook learning. Grades are only part of the equation; success is measured based on individual needs, learning style, and potential.
Scholars learn across disciplines from teachers who are blending career courses with core academic learnings. Meanwhile, regular interaction with industry leaders offers a glimpse into opportunities beyond graduation.
Whether they’re studying soil samples, designing websites, learning a language, or fabricating machines to power the Internet of Things, scholars spend their days preparing to meet the challenges of our ever-changing world.
Ignite helps scholars develop critical thinking, empathy, problem solving, and collaboration skills to recognize their potential and achieve their dreams.
