Before & After School Care

At this time we do not offer an on-site before or after school program. However, there are several well-respected, local day care providers who provide transportation to and from our school building. While these programs are not technically endorsed by Detroit Merit Charter Academy, we're more than happy to provide their information as a service to you. Please feel free to research the locations below to see if they may be the right fit for you.
