Choice & Opportunity
Dearborn Public Schools offers more than 20 unique student tracks and programs. From trade classes to a free associate degree to AP classes, there is a world of opportunity for your child.
Core Curriculum Overview
Earn a college degree before leaving high school
Dearborn offers two programs that combine a high school diploma with an associate degree. In both the Henry Ford Early College and the Collegiate Academy, students attend a combination of high school and college classes for five years and can end up with an associate degree or trade certification from Henry Ford College with no direct cost to the family. The programs differ in where they are and what they offer.
Early College is a separate program housed at Henry Ford College. The program offers hands-on experience and the chance to earn an associate degree or trade certification and be ready to work in a healthcare or manufacturing related field upon graduation or for a jump start on a teaching degree. The programs accept out of district students who live in Wayne County.
Collegiate Academy allows students to attend and participate in activities for four years at one of Dearborn’s traditional high schools, while also pursuing an associate degree at Henry Ford College. For their fifth year, students are entirely on the HFC campus. Eligible Dearborn Public School students are invited to apply for the program at the end of their 10th grade year.
Focused on a career with a pathway to success
Student interests vary, and Dearborn Schools is committed to providing opportunities for students to explore different potential career pathways.

Dearborn Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology
This half -day program is open to the top performing students in ninth through 12th grade and offers a challenging curriculum in – you guessed it – math, science and technology. Students join the program in ninth grade.
Arts, music, and athletics
Art and music are offered at every grade level throughout the district usually during school. (Due to low enrollment, some middle schools only have after-school music options.) Competitive athletics for boys and girls are offered in middle and high school.
