"MITY created an environment where learning, growth, and intellectual curiosity all pushed me outside of my comfort zone. The people and the impression that MITY left on me have become some of the greatest memories of my childhood."

-MITY Alumni

First Day of the Session

All students should arrive at 8:45 AM on the first day and go directly to the opening program. MITY staff will show you where to go. Parents are invited to attend, but are not required to do so. There will be a short program that includes introductions and logistical information. Students will then meet their morning course instructor, who will accompany them to their classroom. Note: Students should report directly to their classrooms at 9:00 AM for all subsequent days of the program.

What to Bring

Students should bring a snack, lunch, and water bottle labeled with their name. MITY classrooms are NUT FREE. Please avoid any snacks that contain any form of peanuts or tree nuts. Students do not need to bring supplies to class; all materials will be provided.
