Welcome

At our ACTech (Art, Communication, and Technology) High School, students experience both personal and individualized instruction based on the Arts, Humanities, and Logistics. An interdisciplinary approach to learning will be emphasized, as students complete a rigorous program with variable instructional practices based on Michigan Merit Curriculum and Common Core State Standards. Credit will be granted and achievement will be communicated based on mastery of standards and skills. Instruction will take place in the classroom, in educational workshops, and through self-designed research and development. Students, staff, and community partnerships will create an enriching, challenging, and thought-provoking learning environment that will prepare and expose students to a collegiate experience.

Kroger Community Rewards Program

Image result for kroger rewards imagesDear Ypsilanti Community High School Stakeholders,

The Kroger Co. Family of Stores is committed to bringing hope and help to the local neighborhoods they call home. Kroger stores are on a mission to go beyond being a part of the community to also helping create a stronger community. We appreciate your participation in our Community Rewards program to help accomplish that mission!  

Kroger has recently upgraded their Community Rewards system, and as a result, our Non-Profit Organization (NPO) has a new account number = AM149.

While the previous number will continue to be associated with our organization, it will not be visible to our members when enrolling. New Members can enroll by searching for either the new number (AM149) or the name of our organization (Ypsilanti Community High School).

If you have any questions please email: kcr18@kroger.com or visit their website at www.kroger.com. Please reference the new number when contacting them for assistance.

Thank you for supporting Ypsilanti Community High School by using the Kroger Community Rewards program when shopping at Kroger.

Go Grizzlies!!
