Our parking lot is off of Mohawk Drive. You will see our building from the traffic light on North Main Street that intersects with Mohawk Drive. The driveway entrance is just a short way down on your right. There is a small green "Intensive Education Academy" sign. 

Visitors should follow the parking lot around to the last parking spaces by our auditorium. When you leave your car, walk past the ramp (as that will lead you to our auditorium) and continue straight towards the flag pole. The main office is across from the flag pole. 

Should you prefer to park closer to our main entrance, follow the parking lot all the way around the building, past the last parking spaces, past the auditorium and to the flag pole. In front of the flag pole are two semi circles that say "authorized parking only". Those visiting for a short time may park there. Our main office is right across from the flag pole.

Please press the buzzer to the right of the door and identify yourself when asked. The receptionist will let you in.

Please note: all visitors may be asked to present a photo ID.
