Why Detroit Merit Charter Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Detroit Merit Charter Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"DMA is clean, safe, and most important the entire staff treats each child as if he/she is their own. My daughter has learned so much and is so happy she attends school there." - Detroit Merit Charter Academy Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 School safety is a top priority.
2 Children receive individual attention and instruction.
3 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to Detroit Merit Charter Academy

School is starting soon and we are excited to be back. The teachers and I have been here all last week training and getting the rooms ready! They will be calling parents this week to introduce themselves and answer any questions. 2015-16 is going to be a great year of learning, growing, and fun! Welcome back Mustangs!
Our Search-Learn-Win contest is now over and we have some winners to announce! Congratulations to Andre E. from Milwaukee Scholars for winning last week’s drawing and N. Jacobs from Paramount Charter Academy for winning the overall drawing for answering all questions correctly. You have both won an iPad mini. Wake Forest Charter Academy is our school winner and will soon receive 10 new iPad minis!
