Innovation Diploma Plus (IDP) is a Transfer School designed to support the social, cultural, emotional and academic development of over-aged and under-credited students. Together we serve students who are looking for an opportunity to experience success, earn their high school diploma, transition to college/careers, and reach their dreams. IDP is intended for youth who have been failed by a traditional system that did not adequately nurture their gifts, curiosity, intelligence and power as learners. IDP values the wealth of creativity, honesty, courage, and hopefulness our youth and their families bring. We know that when they come to a Diploma Plus school, they are making a commitment to honor generations of struggle for the promise of education and success in life. IDP is an alternative in the best sense of the word. Its role is to transform our students’ learning experience from what they’ve been told they can’t be to what we know they can and will be.
