Seventh Graders Explore Local Places of Worship, Develop Understanding of Diverse Religions

Thanks to the diverse community in which we live, the seventh grade students in all three middle schools experienced two full-day field trips. Understanding key concepts in major religions of the world helps our student body to become more broadly developed citizens and helps them foster multiple IB learner profile traits, including being open-minded, reflective, balanced, and principled thinkers.

Chalk about Peace

Students from the Bloomfield Hills High School Lead 9 class recently participated in a Chalk About Peace community service event at BHHS and all three BHS middle schools. More than 50 students at each location wrote positive talk messages in chalk on the schools’ front sidewalks to uplift the community.  Olivia Lupone (9th grader, BHHS) was part of the event. “A lot of people were walking by and reading the messages,” said Lupone. “We hope they had a better day because of it.”

Greetings!

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.
