Milan Center for Innovative Studies

The Milan Center for Innovative Studies at Milan Area Schools prepares every student for success.


Milan's Center for Innovative Studies is a unique experience designed for the senior year and emphasizes the development of 21st century skills.  Students will develop critical thinking and problem solving skills within a project-based learning culture working toward career and college readiness.  Over the course of the year students will work in teams on predesigned projects and student created projects that either present ideas for solving real world problems or create a product that addresses a target market.  Internships, influential speakers, business partnerships, technology integration, and effective communication will all be an emphasis in the center.
