Students in front of lawnStudents will create their own community where the willingness to explore new things is inherent in the student body. Students will meet new people from all walks of life, find their place in a new community, learn new skills and subjects, and challenge themselves to a higher academic standard. With every little challenge that NIYA presents, students learn a little bit more about him or herself and becomes more confident and comfortable with themselves. The exposure to new cultures and diversity is an education in and of itself.

The friendships that you make in this environment will be ones NIYA students will remember for life. These friendships include students from all across the United States from a wide range of geographic, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds.

  • Having faculty as mentors and having them regularly available — students are exposed to faculty in a variety of settings throughout the day creating learning and mentorship opportunities that are hard to find in other environments.
  • Being part of a proud community — Traditions and history drives school character, as such NIYA will influence each student and create a strong network of people and a feeling of community that lasts for life.
