Programs

MICDS offers the opportunity for students to shadow students and their normal classes, design an individual schedule based on student interests, or shadow adult members of our community in order to provide insights to students as they consider college options, fields of study, and career choices.

Living Arrangements and Travel

Network students will live with MICDS School families in a homestay experience.

Students should fly into Lambert-St. Louis Airport (STL) where they will be picked up.

Application Procedure

Applicants should complete the Network Student Information form and return it to the Network Advisor at their home school. We welcome students at any time August through April; however, since arranging for housing can take a while, we encourage interested students to have their Advisors contact us at least six weeks prior to the intended visit.

Dates

Individually arranged for one to two weeks throughout the year. Homestays may not be available over the two-week winter break or two-week spring break, which always falls the last two weeks of March.
