On Monday, June 12th, Henry Ford Academy celebrated the graduation of the 114 members of its Class of 2017.
Henry Ford Academy, a four-year public charter high school located on the campus of The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, celebrates its 20th anniversary as a successful example of public schools in public spaces. Inspired by Henry Ford's "Learning by Doing" philosophy, the Academy has been at the forefront of innovative teaching and active learning since its launch in 1997. HFA was founded as a partnership between Ford Motor Company, The Henry Ford and Wayne County Regional Educational Service Agency.
With spring time comes a host of cool, hands‑on activities and one‑of‑a‑kind elective classes at HFA. Here are some examples of how teachers mix fun with deep and meaningful learning.
