At the Education Achievement Authority our schools make sure to give our students much more than the basics; we give them a new direction. We empower our students to find passion in learning by providing every student with their own laptop, and unique interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses. Our classes and student centered learning methods give students a stake in their own education. To learn more visit our schools pages.

Why choose a traditional school when an EAA option is available?
Education Achievement Authority (EAA) of Michigan schools implement a student-centered model of teaching and learning that allows teachers to personalize instruction to meet the needs of each child. Its teachers are focused on individual student progress rather than a “one size fits all” approach. Teachers assess each student to identify their specific learning needs.
- Each student:
- Works at their own pace — they get extra seat time when they need it and they have an opportunity to accelerate ahead when they are ready:
- For example, if a student can complete course work in six months, rather than nine, they will be advanced to the next level of instruction.
- If a student needs 10 months to complete course work, they will not be penalized because it takes them longer.
- Achieves credit based on when they master their skills and complete individual goals, not when the calendar says it’s time.
- Succeeds through the blended teaching and learning approach of dedicated teachers and support staff, state-of-the-art technology, and their fellow students.
- Parents, students and teachers have real-time access to data on student progress.
- Each student has access to a personal computer.
- 210 days of instruction verses the traditional 175 days (with a trimester option for high school students who need flexibility during the summer months — see details below).
- 95 percent of the resources are directed to the operations of individual EAA member schools.
“[The students] feel safer; they’re learning more. They feel they’re in an environment where they have a chance to be successful.”

A note to parents and prospective parents:
If you received a recent letter that had a subject line “Confirmation of School Assignment” we would like to take this opportunity to clarify some information.
Our intention was to ensure that our currently enrolled families have the information they need to continue their enrollment and that those in close radius of EAA schools become familiar with our innovative programs. If you believe you received this letter in error, please disregard.
We are proud of our schools and believe they offer parents an exciting new direction for their children’s education. However, the letter did not make it clear enough to parents that their local EAA school is just one of several educational options available to them. We apologize for any confusion the letter may have caused.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office of our Chief Operating Officer at (313)263-9808.
