On Sept. 16, St. Isidore Catholic School in Bloomingdale was named the sole school in Illinois and only one of 30 nationwide given the distinction of Microsoft Incubator School for the 2022-23 school year.

This prestigious title has been granted in recognition of the innovative work carried out by the teachers and students.

 

This is the first step toward becoming a Microsoft Showcase School, joining an exclusive community of innovative schools around the world that share insights and best practices for transforming every aspect of their mission.

"We are delighted to expand our STEM programming through our distinction as a Microsoft Incubator School and are excited to partner with Microsoft as we work toward becoming an official Microsoft Showcase School," said Principal Corie Alimento.

Showcase schools create student-centered, immersive, and inclusive experiences that inspire lifelong learning, stimulating the development of essential future-ready skills so students are empowered to achieve more. This outstanding accomplishment is attributed to the tireless efforts of our entire school community: administration, faculty, students, parents, and friends of SICS. "All have invested time, talent, and treasure to aid in this outcome," said Technology Director Rita Carter.
