This year 48 seniors, representing a whopping 51% of the Class of 2021, at Innovation Academy Charter School (IACS) earned the John and Abigail Adams scholarship. This award marks high achievement on the Math, English Language Arts, and Biology MCAS exams. To qualify for this scholarship, students have to earn Advanced on either the Math or English exam and Proficient or Advanced on the other two.
