Curriculum

Academy for Business & Technology offers a variety of learning opportunities for our students that align with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, the Michigan K-12 Standards for Science and the Michigan K-12 Standards for Social Studies. Students are required to think critically and problem solve as they master academic content. Additionally, they develop life skills through collaborative work with their peers.

The delivery of the curriculum is linked to providing hands-on, real life experiences within the entire school community. Instruction includes a special focus on "the greats" - by weaving the study of great people, ideas, events and problems throughout the curriculum, we make learning more vivid, interesting and relevant to students' lives. Teaching occurs in many forms including direct instruction, cooperative learning, project-based learning and other forms of instruction that provide responsive, varied learning situations that meet the needs of each individual learner.

The project based learning includes direct emphasis on teaching enhanced science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, courses for selected students. ABT will soon become one of the few Michigan charter schools with a national STEM certification.

Our caring teaching staff consists of certified and highly qualified teachers who work hard every day to ensure that ABT students receive the finest education possible. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows our teaching staff to personalize the learning experience for each student.
