Detroit Edison Public School Academy participated in the Schools of Success Showcase in Nashville, Tennessee, May 4-7, 2011. View their presentation (PDF, 1.2MB).

Detroit Edison Public School Academy (DEPSA) has a great deal of service-learning experience, and is committed to combining state standards-based school design with service-learning events that teach students the value of STEM-related lessons incorporating intercultural awareness.

With funding from this grant, they will deepen their work with the STEM Global Learning Initiative (GLI) by providing highly qualified educators the necessary tools, resources and instructional practices to meet the diverse needs of urban students in a globally competitive society.

DEPSA's student body is 99.8% African-American from various backgrounds, with 70% considered "at-risk." They employ approximately 120 staff, all of whom are involved in various service-learning activities throughout the school year.

DEPSA has cultivated working relationships with a number of organizations, including the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE), Engineering Society of Detroit, National Basketball Association, Children's Hospital, and the Boy Scouts of America and Eastern Michigan University.

In fall of 2010, DEPSA opened a state-of-the-art high school. Supported by local and regional foundations, DEPSA High will be the first Michigan Future School, an initiative to promote STEM-related curricula and service as a reform model for 21st Century Learning Skills.
