We are a member of the Hanley Harper Group, Inc. (HHG) family of academies. HHG’s mission is to develop the whole student for success in the global marketplace.
AIS is located in the heart of Hamtramck, a city known as the melting pot of Michigan. More than 20 languages will be heard throughout our hallways. Here, students will benefit from our strong ELL (English Language Learner) program, which guides them through the school day seamlessly while also helping to enhance their home language.
We are a tuition-free charter public school and follow all of the State of Michigan’s teacher certification and student testing requirements. However, as a member of the HHG family of academies, the standards don’t stop with what the State requires. The award winning educational program is based on National Standards.
Students attending AIS will be able to participate in international exchange programs. The school will develop relationships with sister schools in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. Throughout the school year, students develop virtual connections with students in a chosen sister school.
Academy of International Studies will eventually become a K-12 school offering an International Baccalaureate High School, which offers an academically challenging program that prepares students for success in any college in the world and life!
