Henderson Academy students are exposed to pre-engineering concepts and music technology. This exposure includes solar energy panel design and construction, robotics, building science kits, rocket system design, music technology, Black Girl Coding and other hands-on activities. These activities prepare the students for careers in several industries including manufacturing, engineering, music and computers.
Henderson has a transformative culture where safety and security is our top initiative. The academy has on staff: DPSCD and DPD Police, two security officers, a Dean of Culture, three Culture Facilitators, six parent volunteers, an attendance officer, an assistant Principal and two Ceasefire personnel.
Henderson has two of the following staff members to meet the students’ needs: Psychologists, Social Workers, counselors, occupational therapists and speech therapists. There is also a school nurse available to address medical concerns.
The majority of Henderson’s students met their academic targets because we have several dynamic partners to assist with academic and social growth. These partners include General Motors, DTE Energy, Oakpoint Church, Body of Christ International Church and Lawrence Institute ofTechnology. We also have Pathway to Potential sponsored by the Department of Human Services (DHS) along with an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to promote parent engagement.
