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.

2019 Engineering Summer Program Opportunities


The Center for Engineering Diversity & Outreach (CEDO) offers a collection of summer programs for a diverse group of middle and high school students. We strive to provide greater educational opportunities for young people including individuals from educational, cultural, geographic, or socioeconomic backgrounds considered to be underrepresented in engineering. Our camps challenge young people to explore engineering disciplines through exciting real-world challenges. The curriculum takes a holistic approach to learning focusing on STEM education, personal and professional development, and college readiness.

To be eligible for CEDO camps, participants must be permanent residents or citizens of the United States.
