Preview Days - Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Preview Days


At IMSA, we believe that open spaces equal open minds. We invite you and your family to join us for a full day of IMSA’s open house, known as Preview Day. This is a day, centered on our prospective students, where they can come on campus and get to experience what their life could be like as an IMSA student. The day consists of presentations, tours, demonstrations, conversations, and mock classes that take place all across our campus. For our first time visitors, we recommend they schedule their day with these events:

  1. The Welcome Presentation where you will get to hear from President, Dr. Jose’ Torres, Principal, Dr. Robert Hernandez, and Admissions Director, Kelly Lofgren. They begin promptly at 10:30 so arrive early to get your seat.
  2. A presentation on: Student life, Athletics, Learning at IMSA, or the College and Academic Counseling.
  3. The optional brunch ($5 cash) will give you a sneak peek into the student Café.
  4. Session 1: a mock class in Math or any of the Sciences
  5. Session 2: a mock class in History, English, World Languages, or the Arts.
  6. A presentation about Applying to IMSA. Kelly Lofgren will go over the requirements for application and what the Office of Admissions is looking for in an IMSA student.
