Important Announcement

As we progress toward the start of our 2020-2021 school year, I wanted to share a recent development with you. Last night, I presented the Board of Education with our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, as required by Governor Whitmer. The Board voted to adopt the plans as presented and approved them to be sent to the state. Following the approval of our COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, the Board had a lengthy discussion about our return to school, grappling with the complexities of this complicated time. Ultimately, out of an abundance of caution, the Board voted to start the school year remotely.

Students who thrive in a small environment that develops character, integrity, compassion for others, and academic skills will find success at Bowers Academy.
Founded to address the needs of non-traditional learners, Bowers Academy balances academic challenge with self-reflection, exceptionally small class sizes, and the unique learning environment of the Bowers Farm.
Our ultimate goal at Bowers Academy is to graduate competent, empathetic, aware, and empowered individuals.

Core Beliefs

  • Relationships are primary, particularly in this setting. Staff are sensitive to power struggles that impede the formation of positive relationships.
  • Student choice facilitates engagement and offers a sense of power to students.
  • All students learn at different rates. Bowers Academy offers an alternative setting to structure the delivery of curriculum around this concept.
  • The delivery of our curriculum must offer a significant departure from what students have already experienced and failed.
  • Bowers Academy strives to create a safe environment for students to make choices and establish independence.
  • A low student to teacher ratio is maintained.
