Enrichments are a vital and exciting part of the International Academy experience. Students are exposed to new, intellectually challenging concepts and physical challenges delivered in a positive and supportive environment. Participants are encouraged to use this program as an opportunity to develop their personal interests, sample new experiences and challenge themselves outside their normal range of interests. The Enrichment Program offers a variety of educational experiences in the arts, culture, history, language, STEM and domestic and international travel. Graduation Requirements - Enrichments are a graduation requirement of the International Academy.  Students who attend the IA for four years must complete six different Enrichments, including one career mentorship. 
The Enrichment office is located in the International Center at the Okma Campus.
