SER Learning Academy | Alternative High School


In partnership with Hazel Park School District Adult and Alternative Education, SER LEARNING ACADEMY serves to provide learners with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become successful citizens of a global society.

SER Metro-Detroit began to operate the SER Learning Academy in 2008 as part of our efforts to keep youth in school and transform their paths to the future.

SER LEARNING ACADEMY is an alternative high school for youth aged 16-19 years old. The school is unique in that it is tailored to the needs of each student. Its model combines classroom instruction with technology and enables students to learn a trade while in school. We are a high school diploma program, not a G.E.D. program.

SER LEARNING ACADEMY is structured so that students participate in academic instruction in the classroom and on the computer for part of the day and in hands-on vocational training for the remainder of the school day.  Students may select from building trades and computer technology classes as a career path. Academic instruction is inclusive of all core subject areas required for high school graduation and uses a State-approved curriculum.  School personnel also provide students with career and academic counseling and assistance with the transition into higher education or employment.

Prior to enrollment, a credit audit is conducted to evaluate individual student needs and an academic program, based upon the student’s needs, is created.  Students meeting the Michigan Merit Curriculum graduation requirements for Alternative Education will receive their diploma. The program is small so that we are able to meet the individual needs of the students. Because of this, enrollment is conducted on a first come, first-served basis.
