About Our School

Thomas Jefferson
Imagine a school that helps you find your way in a new country with a different language and different customs.
The International Newcomers Academy (INA) is one of CMSD's many high performing school choices for our newest students. Staff members provide rigorous English as a Second Language (ESL) intervention classes and a comprehensive academic program for students to successfully graduate and go on to college.
This is a full PreK-12 school for students who have just arrived in Cleveland from other countries and Puerto Rico. Students speak more than 24 languages and come from at least that many nations, man with little or no formal education.
We partner with Catholic Charities, a resettlement agency that provides migration and refugee services for families and a refugee primer for teachers.
At INA, you can get used to your new surroundings with the help of:
  • smaller classes with individual attention
  • technology enriched learning environment
  • highly trained, dedicated staff, endorsed as Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
  • culturally sensitive environment offering social supports
  • all inclusive extracurricular activities
