WSC Academy, a tuition free charter high school, is currently registering students for this fall at our Brighton and Ypsilanti locations. As a public charter school WSC Academy will now function as its own school district allowing us the flexibility to meet the needs of every individual student. As the sponsor of the Academy, Work Skills Corporation envisioned “Students enjoying the smaller, non-traditional learning environment, and being treated as adults” says Tina Jackson, Senior Vice President of Work Skills Corporation, a community-based employment and training organization headquartered in Brighton. Lake Superior State University will be the authorizer and Integrity Educational Services will be the management company. The focus of these three institutions is to make sure all students have an individualized successful experience.

Our new facility is located in the Davis Community and Educational Center at 855 Jefferson St. Ypsilanti, MI. 48197 accommodates a small school environment for online and project-based learning.
Classes run Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Students work obtaining their high school diploma or GED. They work at their own pace in WSC’s leading edge computer lab.
WSC Academy is able to boast a 90% graduation rate of their senior class for the 2011-2012 school year. Attributed to this success are the many programs developed for the student as an individual learner. WSC encourages students to work at their own pace and master the course lessons before moving forward. We will continue to offer student programs such as Job Club, Bright Futures, and Leadership Club.
WSC Academy continues to be a high school where students that have struggled in traditional settings find a place to learn, make friends, and grow to meet the needs of their future.
