How was your impression of your time at CIA?

CIA marked the beginning of my academic journey - high school years. Im genuinely grateful for the entirety of the experience, not the highs and the lows. Navigating high school isn't easy; as a teenager, you're in the process of self-discovery. Despite the clichè those years are pivotal for shaping the adult you aspire to become. CIA played a vital role in my development. I gained insights into discipline, honed creative and critical thinking, and learned the value of teamwork, among other skills. It became a place where friendships evolved into family. CIA allowed me the space to make mistakes and learn from them, forming a fundamental part of the person I am today.

CIA was a great school where I had a lot of fun and created many happy memories. I met numerous friends whom I still maintain contact with today.
