I must say that my 4 years of high school at Advanced Technology was awesome! I love how they gave myself and other students the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom by giving us real-life scenarios and helping us to solve them. Especially with going into college straight from high school, we were able to learn about finances and what we should expect when dealing with financial aid and applying to universities and/or community colleges. I am glad to say that I have graduated from this school, and that i would recommend it to any other student.

I’ve been attending Advanced Technology Academy since the second grade. This school has changed over the years for the better. Each year offered students different opportunities to better their future. One of the many opportunities that ATA offeres is the Early Middle College program. In which they partner with Henry Ford College, to allow students to take college classes as well as high school class simultaneously. If completed, the student will receive their associates degree one year after they graduate high school. Overall, I’ve learned a lot over my stay. No school is “ Perfect ”, but ATA does everything in their power to ensure each student obtains the best education. I would recommend Advanced Technology Academy to anyone searching for a great school.
All the years I have been taking my daughter to Advanced Technology Academy I have been very satisfied. I like the fact that this academy gets you prepared and ready for college allowing to do get credit hours to attend college. I she with the many programs the school has to offered, it allows my daughter to experience exchanges with many cultures as well as get involved in sports and clubs. I must say my daughter is an honor student and with the Advanced Technology Academy support and the foundations of outstanding teachers, she has advanced in her grades in her junior year and has been honored twice for student of the month. I am glad I made the right choice in selecting the Advanced Technology Academy and recommend any child to attend school.
