ATA’s elementary school curriculum is created and implemented by our highly qualified teaching staff. Students are engaged with meaningful learning activities and “hands on” projects that relate their learning to real world examples and experiences. Our teachers use a variety of best practices and teaching strategies to challenge our students and ensure they are successful inside the classroom, as well as with all of their endeavors outside of the classroom. The elementary school creates a culture of lifelong learning and molds students into respectful citizens who exemplify our REACH values.
The Advanced Technology Academy is devoted to educating children through activities, sports and clubs as well as what is being taught in the classroom. ATA's staff continuously dedicates itself to ensuring all students have the opportunity to feel like they are a part of something larger.
The high school believes in educating the whole child. We offer sports, tutoring, clubs and associations that connect to the students' interests, career planning and individualized academic planning. Our Ford PAS program is nationally recognized. This program enhances a student's 21st century education by giving them skills in problem solving, critical thinking, team work, communication and global awareness.
Our science and STEM program are conducted in state of the art science labs. Students in the STEM program experience the real world lab experience from instruction to dissection. The engineering track students participate in the “First Robotics” competitions and learn how to design or redesign products by using Engineering Pro CAD programming. The business career pathway gives students a real life entrepreneurial experience by preparing and presenting a business plan to outside business leaders. The business students go through mock interviews by Ford volunteers in their senior year. New this year, is the Microsoft Certification; a credential that industry recognizes as highly desirable. The third pathway offered is health care. This industry is growing and demands that students be prepared by studying medical terminology, medical math and anatomy/physiology.
Our entire philosophy revolves around preparing the student for college and careers. We offer concurrent enrollment classes that students can receive credit from Lake Superior State University and/or Davenport University. These classes not only save money for parents but also provide the opportunity for students to finish their college plan in less than 4 years. We have a safe, caring and highly qualified staff of individuals that work for the success of the student.

Beginning in 2013, Advanced Technology Academy was approved by the State of Michigan to offer an Early/Middle College Program. The Early/Middle College Program is designed to allow a pupil to earn a high school diploma and up to 60 college credits or an Associate’s Degree. Students enrolled in the program agree to stay an extra 13th year to earn their high school diploma.
ATA is partnering with Henry Ford College to start a Mechatronics Program for our students. Students in this new program will receive college credit along with certificates from nationally recognized organizations. Students will take a one-year or two-year program that will allow them to enter a MAT2 program at Henry Ford College.
The PLTW Gateway To Technology Program is taught in conjunction with a rigorous academic curriculum. The hands-on project-based program is divided into six independent nine-week units.
Students envision, design and test their ideas with the same advanced modeling software used by companies like Lockheed Martin, Intel and Sprint. They study mechanical and computer control systems. Think robotics and animation. Students also explore the importance of energy, including innovative ways to reduce, conserve and produce it using solar, thermal and wind power.
The knowledge that students gain and the skills they build from the Gateway To Technology Program create a strong foundation for further STEM learning, from nanotechnology to applied engineering.Read More »
