Campus Serves High School and College Students in One State-of-the-Art Space

In Lee’s Summit, Missouri, located about 20 miles outside of Kansas City, a different kind of school campus welcomed its first students in 2017.

Dubbed the Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC), the school serves both high school and college-aged students (from about ages 16 to 30) who are pursuing accelerated degree programs, made possible by a partnership between the University of Central Missouri, Metropolitan Community College and Lee’s Summit R-7 School District.
