Detroit high school students graduate from U-M architecture prep program

Earlier this year, the U-M Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, in coordination with Detroit Public Schools and the Education Achievement Authority, graduated 25 DPS juniors from an architecture prepatory program in Detroit.

ArcPrep provides participating high school students with 1.5 high school credits in an immersive, semester-long college prep course on architecture, urbanism and integrated design studio practices.
