Principal's Message

  • Dear DIA Families, 

    Greetings and Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. 

    It is with great pleasure that I take the charge and responsibility of leading the young ladies of Detroit International Academy for Young Women. It is my mission to offer opportunity for experiences that will prepare our girls college and careers though our pathway of Biomedical Science and Veterinary Medicine, while fostering the districts vision of students first, integrity, service, excellence, equity and tenacity. 

    I know that in over 15 years of educating children and 4 years of administration leading institutions K-12, that the recipe for student achievement is relationships, expectations and support. 

    Building confidence, perseverance and resilience is how our young ladies become legendary when serving their community. Fostering innovation is how they become visionaries of the future. 

    As you, find time to relax during the summer please build in some time encourage reading and physical activity.

    August 15, 2019 4-7pm
