Karen Iglesia to Open Charter School in Rochester, NY
January 15, 2013
The planning phase is well under way to realize Karen Iglesia’s dream of establishing a science, technology, engineering and math(STEM) based charter school in the Rochester area. Understanding that students do best when mentored from an early age, the plan for the Infinite Horizons Charter School will be to provide a rigorous, no nonsense curriculum at the elementary level and beyond. Additionally, the school will provide traditional and non-traditional sports programs and career and college preparation. Please visit www.infinitehorizonscharterschool.com for details.
A well-rounded, properly educated student provides him or her with plenty of options in moving towards a productive life. Karen’s 16 years of experience working with more than 30,000 students has given her insight into the educational, emotional and economic needs of the community. The charter school will provide a safe, productive environment where students develop their individual talents and skills, excel academically, and prepare adequately for a productive future.
Watch for additional details as the project unfolds.

Iglesia Summer of Opportunity Program Highlights
September 4, 2012
This summer 20 students participated in the Iglesia Academy of Occupational and Academic Enhancement. The students explored a plethora of careers and educational opportunities including jobs in the airline industry, law enforcement, construction, architecture, news media and civil service. The Iglesia SOOP students toured RIT, and had a question and answer session with a college panel comprised of alumni from Cornell, RIT and Fredonia. Throughout the program, the students perfected their interview skills, learned proper etiquette, and developed a 30-second elevator speech. Several times a week Iglesia instructors taught SAT Prep to familiarize the participants with the exam, and to increase their math skills. In addition, Iglesia provided hands-on engineering projects allowing students to use their teambuilding skills to design and execute carefully constructed plans.
We toured Habitat for Humanity, and volunteered at Foodlink. Judge Miller and City Council President Lovely Warren adressed the students, and admonished them to complete their education, and make good decisions.
Iglesia would like to thank all who made this program a success, and particularly the City of Rochester for funding this extremely valuable program. The students left with a sense of purpose and direction, and learned the value of the connection between education, career and community.
Brandon Triche Shares Expertise at Coach Iglesia’s Basketball Camp 2012
June 29, 2012
Brandon Triche addressed one hundred and forty students from all over Monroe County who attended the four-day annual Iglesia sponsored basketball camps. The students were thrilled to meet Triche, and listened intently as he shared an account of his rigorous academic and athletic schedules. Triche gave the students tips on how to succeed in college, and how to stay focused in order to reach goals. He then put the students through various drills and exercises designed to challenge the students and motivate them to work hard at perfecting their skills.
Triche, a senior guard on the Syracuse University Men’s Basketball team was a gracious guest, and spent much time answering questions and allowing people to take pictures. A former Iglesia Educational Center student, Triche understands the need to focus on one’s studies, and has no problem telling the students as much. The students were very excited to meet Triche and left camp encouraged to stay on track for graduation and onto college.
Other guests at camp included former NBA player and Syracuse Alumnus, John Wallace, former Razor Sharks, James(Mook) Reeves, Nigel Moore, and former All Greater Rochester Player of the Year, Terell Kittelberger.
