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.
