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
