In Planning Stage - A College High School in Northern Nevada: Plans are currently being developed for a private
residence College High School in Northern Nevada for exceptionally bright students. The school will involve tuition for most
students. However, financial analysis indicates our ability to provide many students with 100% scholarships - including costs for
residence. Summer classes will be available. Any high school age youth will be eligible to apply. Course work to be accelerated.
Students will graduate high school while having had the opportunity to earn college credit, Some students may graduate with a
degree. Icon has an agreement with a top university. This school will work only for ambitious youth. The school is to be technology
based with professional, experienced tutors instead of teachers.

THE PLAN, is being finalized to do a School Bond Offering to fund purchase of property for the school. Management anticipates
the school will not open before 2016. Tentative plans include a campus large enough to include: tennis; stables - horses for
supervised recreation. Buildings will be 'primarily' one story, for safety reasons..A circular plan is being considered for the main
building structure of class rooms and resident rooms, with two wings expanding on either side of the front entrance to contain
most of the administration offices. Extensive consideration is being given to the layout of the structure to assure the safety of the
student residents. It is also possible an acceptable property such as a large ranch may become available with some structures.
Additional structures would be added.
Below are photos of sections of other facilities illustrating our intention to use: sky lights, and a circular design for the
main structure. We are using the facilities in these photos only as examples to give you an idea of our plan. Also
our building designs must accommodate for possible snow fall. Architect's Illustrations will be available soon.
