DCAN Launches New Grant Program For Middle and High Schools

With support from the Skillman Foundation, the Detroit College Access Network launched the College Bound Detroit grants for middle and high schools in Detroit. The College Bound Detroit Grants program mimic Michigan College Access Network’s Reach Higher grants. The goal of the grant is to support schools with improving their college-going cultures by providing funding and support to increase their baseline college enrollment, persistence, or graduation data by at least 5% and ensure that every student has a college and career plan. All awarded schools have committed to attend regular meetings, assemble a post-secondary Advisory Council, assess their college-going culture, and identify and improve a college access or success area of improvement. Congratulations to the following schools for being College Bound Detroit Grantee schools:

  • Jalen Rose Leadership Academy
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School
  • Henry Ford Academy; School for Creative Studies
  • Pershing High School
  • Cornerstone Health & Technology HS
  • Chandler Park Academy High School
