The mission of the Islip Academic Center is to provide specialized, individually structured, standards-based education deeply embedded in the Common Core, while integrating CDOS standards into classroom and community based and service learning activities. Career assessment, level one interviews and transition planning interface with school-to-work learning. Career-based training and related internship experiences provide students with participation in the community. Our commitment to a safe and nurturing environment allows students to access these opportunities based on their individual needs. We offer our students academic and employability skills with social growth opportunities and real world connections, while preparing them for challenges of the future.
