The Institute for Educational Advancement (IEA) is turning 20! On July 9, 1998, IEA was founded as a nonprofit in Southern California to meet the needs of gifted youth and their families in Southern California and nationally. As we reflect on two decades of working with brilliant students, parents and teachers, we invite you to celebrate with us and share your memories.
Join us in celebrating our 20th Anniversary! If you would like to participate in our 20th Anniversary planning committee, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are planning events, noted below, to celebrate this special year in our history.
