Newcomer Center Renamed

Newcomer Center Renamed

On October 7, 2021, the District 214 Board of Education approved to change the name of the Newcomer Center to the International Newcomer Academy. The program serves high school students who have recently arrived to the United States and are new to the English language. The program provides students with personalized instruction with the goal to send them to their home schools within one to two years.

Newcomer staff say this new name better reflects the international variety of their students, and to the academic rigor that makes up the program.
