The Owensboro Innovation Academy will host an open house from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, at the school located at 1010 Allen Street.
The open house is specifically for eighth-graders and their parents to come check out what OIA is all about. OIA currently serves students in Daviess County and Hancock County.
“Right now we are in the recruiting phase at our school. Myself and current OIA students have been visiting area middle schools to tell students about OIA. Hosting an open house is even more beneficial as it allows the students and their parents an opportunity to come check us out,” said Beth Benjamin, OIA director.
The Owensboro Innovation Academy is a small stand-alone high school where students learn through project-based learning. OIA is in its second year of existence and is the only New Tech Network affiliated school in Kentucky. You must start at OIA your freshman year. New students are selected using a stratified lottery that reflects the population of their home high school. If you’re interested in applying to be a student, you can pick up an application at your middle school or call OIA at (270) 686-1085 and the school will send you one via email.
“Traditional high school isn’t for everybody. I’m thankful to get the opportunity to attend a school that’s designed to best meet how I learn,” said Hannah Clark, OIA student.
