"Rachel Jones, a Detroit high school senior at the Henry Ford Academy School For Creative Studies, didn't spend last summer like most kids her age. 

Instead of a typical summer job or just hanging out with friends, Jones worked at the architecture firm Hamilton Anderson & Associates, sometimes clocking in as much as 40 hours a week over a seven-week span. It was an opportunity she received through the Senior Mastery Process, a graduation requirement for students at the three Henry Ford Academies. The program originated at Henry Ford Academy, a charter school in Dearborn founded by The Henry Ford and Ford Motor Company, and has expanded to campuses in Detroit and San Antonio, Texas..."

Statement From Our Principal

posted Nov 30, 2016, 10:29 AM by Lisa Kreinbring

November 30, 2016 - “Freland Pridgen, an 11th grade student at Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies, died on Sunday, November 27, 2016 following an act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Although he was new to our school this year, Freland quickly made many friends and was well liked by students and staff.

This tragedy raised many emotions for our entire school. Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies has a student services team made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel at difficult times such as this. We met with high school students on Monday and provided the opportunity for them to circle and pay homage as a village through heartfelt expressions such as discussions of loss and a libation ceremony.

Our students and staff members are encouraged to draw pictures, write poems, and leave words of encouragement and inspiration on a remembrance wall in our school. We will continue to have counselors available for any student who may need or want help or any type of assistance surrounding the loss of their peer and friend.” -- Curtis L. Lewis, Ph.D., Principal
