Greetings!

With a focus on social emotional health and community involvement, Bowers Academy supports learners who seek a nontraditional environment as they earn their Bloomfield Hills High School Diploma.
 

As a school community, we commit to the following guiding viewpoints:

  • We believe that high quality academic instruction is essential for the growth and development of all learners.  At Bowers, we learn collaboratively utilizing a responsive, flexible, and experiential curriculum. 

  • We believe that relationships are at the core of a healthy school community.  At Bowers, we focus on restorative approaches to behavior and support recognizing that all people bring unique circumstances and strengths with them.  

  • We believe that social emotional learning is critically important for the long term success of all students.  At the center of the Bowers experience is a research-based social emotional curriculum.  Social emotional supports and community building are emphasized in each facet of the learning experience.

  • We believe in the power of place.  At Bowers, we emphasize connection to place and engage in experiential learning that includes exploration of farm, community, and self.

  • We believe that our students can best realize their strengths, interests, and independence when they are immersed in experiential learning both on and off campus.  At Bowers we work to develop strong partnerships to provide students with a variety of experiences to prepare them for their future.
