The best way to see if IMS is a good fit for you is to visit us during a school day. You’ll get to walk the halls, attend class and meet some of the people who make IMS more than a school. You’re invited to visit us on one of our official visit days (a great chance to meet some future classmates) or contact us to set up a personalized visit day that works for you. If you have questions about any upcoming events or about IMS, please contact Candi at 319-656-2073 or

Personal Visit Day Sign Up

If you are considering attending IMS for 9-12th grade, we recommend that you visit campus first to see if we are a good fit for you. If our official visit days don’t work for you, you can request a personal visit day by filling out the form below. Then our director of enrollment, Candi Schmieder, will be in touch with you to set up a day & time. For visit days, we usually have you shadow another student for the day so you can see what classes are like. We also treat you to lunch.

First Look Fridays

First Look Fridays are new open house events for transfer students and/or their parents and 7th-8th grade students and/or their parents. These will be held the first Friday of every month and are designed to be days you can drop in for a tour and see classes, chapel, etc. in action. These are not shadow days, but rather a chance for us to introduce ourselves to you and to see if you’d like to come back for a Visit Day to shadow a student.

November 2nd will be our first one.  Then the dates will be December 7th, January 4th, February 1st, March 1st, April 5th, and May 3rd.

Other Events

In addition to official visit days, we have activities geared to potential future students of IMS. They’re fun out-of-school events so you can start making friends and getting a taste of the IMS experience. Check out the whole list of planned events for 2018-19.
