Detroit Achievement Academy
Detroit Achievement Academy stands as a beacon of innovative education, driven by a vision to empower nearly 1,000 K-8th grade students. This visionary network has boldly redefined the very measures of school and student success across three pivotal dimensions: mastery of knowledge and skills, character development, and high-quality work. Placing an emphasis on students having authentic ownership in each learner’s educational journey, the network has codified its educational model into a replicable toolkit, which serves as a resource for multiple organizations to embrace and implement their groundbreaking educational model. If they win the $1 million prize, they will cultivate a community of future founders, exemplified by their support in establishing a deaf school in Missouri and a micro-middle school in Texas.
