Bond Update: Field Availability

Planning and construction surrounding the exciting bond work in Bloomfield Hills Schools is well underway. As our district continues with constructing incredible spaces for our community, we will need to close some of our athletic fields temporarily. 

  • The Lahser parking lot will have very limited accessibility beginning summer 2021. Lahser softball field will close 6/19/21 until Spring of 2023 and the baseball field will close in Fall 2021 for several months.

  • BHMS soccer field will close 6/19/21 until late Fall 2022 and the BHMS baseball field will close 6/19/21 until late Fall 2022.

We understand that this is an inconvenience for some of our community and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work toward creating improved spaces for our students and greater community.

Bowers Academy is located on Bowers School Farm in Bloomfield Hills, where students and staff have the unique opportunity to engage in rigorous experiential learning in an innovative setting. 

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. 

Thank you for expressing interest in Bowers Academy.
