Transform learning with us.

Annually, MICDS is the proud host of the Summit for Transformative Learning in St. Louis, known as “STLinSTL.” Although the 2020 summit was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference typically takes place at our campus toward the end of May or in early June. Participants learn from the best, most sought-after experts in K-12 education and enjoy invaluable networking opportunities.
