Located in Inverness, Nova Scotia; Inverness Education Centre Academy opened its doors in September of 1992, under the name of Inverness Junior/Senior High School. Originally it was designed as a grade 7-12 building, then, with time and a change in name, it transformed into the present day P-12 school. Despite its many changes throughout the years, it has been, and will continue to be the mission of the school to foster the development of students who will be caring, informed, responsible, and positively contributing citizens.

In an attempt to reduce the number of paper notices, schedules, and newsletters we will be going digital, as much as possible, at IECA. Please look to our website for all school related news and information - http://ieca.srsb.ca/ If you do not have access to the internet please call the school and we will be happy to send hard copies home. Newsletters will be available on the first of each month during the school year.
Volunteers in Our School
Volunteerism has a positive impact on the school environment. In accordance with Board procedures and provincial requirements on Volunteers in the School, a Child Abuse
Register Check and Vulnerable Sector Check (formerly a Criminal Record Check) are a mandatory requirement of the screening process. You are encouraged to contact the school if you are interested in volunteering your services.
The Strait Regional School Board recognizes the value of curriculum-based events, field trips, tours and sports trips and encourages schools to consider these experiences as an important part of enriching student learning and instruction.
