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.

YCHS STEMM and YCHS Registration Information

It has come to my attention that there is some confusion over our STEMM student schedules. The confusion is related to students “not having elective classes”. This is just not true as our STEMM student schedules are still being completed. Please know that we will do everything that we can to get the students their desired elective classes, while still staying on track with the STEMM Middle College graduation requirements. Your Administrative Staff and High School Counselors are working diligently to accomplish this. 
 

There is a dual enrollment meeting for our students tomorrow evening, August 20, at 6 pm in the YCHS auditorium for our Washtenaw Community College Students. The STEMM student schedules for grades 10-12 will be available to access online on August 29 or the students can come to the YCHS Counseling Center and pick their schedule up between 1-4 pm. The STEMM orientation for our new 9th graders will be on August 30. Breakfast will start at 9 am in the YCHS cafeteria. We will have schedules for our STEMM 9th graders at the orientation. 
 

I sent a letter home to all of our YCHS stakeholders last week that contained this information. I look forward to seeing you soon and am excited for a great 2019-2020 school year.
