About Us

THE IAM PURPOSE STATEMENT

image32

Producing profitable solutions to socio-economic problems. 


As academic and practical changes evolve, they do so at a level of great magnitude. Such changes are affecting organizations, institutions, and individuals who find that they are falling behind in the progression factor. 


By way of the phrase “falling behind” reference is made to the challenge of adapting, relating, or maintaining the ability to advance within the vicissitudes of academic knowledge and applied know-how.


The purpose of the IAM is to serve primary and secondary school students, their parents, institutions and business clients that are in need of logistical, technical, and business strategy services as they enter the realm of obtaining or providing an apprenticeship position aligned with an academic trajectory

STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT

image33


While new generations are emerging, it is the continuity of known identities that allow for continued growth and success for all.  


The IAM has researched, studied and actualized the nuances of Dual-Education by way of apprenticeships and academics.

 

This dual-education model is fostered as a way for students of all ages and stages of their lives to dream big and position themselves succinctly into whatever career they so desire.


There is no task too great for the U.S.A.


History has clearly proven that for every obstacle, tragedy or threat presented to the U.S., there is an innate reaction to stand tall, band together and get through such adversities together.  

THE IAM COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE

image34

Our commitment to excellence embraces the pursuit of brilliance both inside and outside the classroom and the workplace. 


We encourage critical thinking and emphasize the learning process over rote memorization. 


This combination of learning methods are guaranteed to identify exceptional young citizens with a determination to contribute to society, as a whole, in a very positive manner.


When choices are to be made during the formative years of a young person’s life, the options as presented to them must bear significant relevance, both to where they are in life currently and where they hope to be in the future.
