PAC Academic Committee

The mission of the PAC Academic Committee is to facilitate communication and involvement between IMSA parents and the Administration, Faculty and staff on academic matters. We work with students, parents, faculty, and residential staff, to help make your student’s time at IMSA rewarding, educational, and productive.

The duties of the Academic committee are to:

  • Maintain parent involvement as IMSA establishes appropriate curriculum (course selection, variety, and levels of instruction) for students.
  • Provide information and input on parental concerns to the administration and/or faculty within the general area of academics at IMSA.
