Our team is dedicated to providing a world-class education to empower our scholars and help them make their dreams a reality. 

Caring, Neighborhood School

Over 90% of our scholars live within a 1.5 mile radius of the school. This, along with right-sized enrollment and manageable class sizes, creates a close-knit community where scholars feel safe and are able to develop meaningful relationships with adults.

Academics - A holistic approach

Of course, the academic skills necessary to succeed are central to our program, We also prioritize a holistic approach to learning by purposefully integrating character development and cultivating a scholars sense of self. Each aspect is critical to developing happy, stable and successful human beings.

College Readiness

The importance of a college

education is rapidly increasing in the 21st-century. As part of our enduring

commitment to creating opportunities for our students, we offer a college prep

curriculum and a clear path to college through our network of schools.

Meaningful Enrichment

During the school day, we offer music and dance classes as part of our core curriculum, and we partner with community organizations to offer after-school enrichment and athletic programming such as RacquetUp Detroit. At MacDowell, scholars receive rigorous academic content and opportunities to cultivate their unique passions.

Worry-free Transportation

Life can be hectic, and it is made more difficult when a parent must walk or drive their scholar to school on a daily basis. MacDowell families have access to worry-free bus transportation to and from school each day free of charge.
