The mission of the Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences is to provide a high quality, holistic education anchored in the arts and sciences that prepares our students to compete in a global society.

Our Vision

Our vision is to serve as a premier school district that is committed to a quality education for all students. We will be recognized as a world class leader in education by providing a state of the art learning environment...
… where every student is given an opportunity to explore his or her interests and talents and is prepared to become a better analytical and critical thinker who is a well rounded, self-reliant, innovative, productive life-long learner equipped to compete in and add value to a global society;
… where every teacher is highly qualified in his or her chosen field of expertise and possesses the passion, the proficiency and the professional commitment to guide students in reaching the highest academic standards;
… where every school leader is committed to educational collaboration, academic excellence and the progressive development of children;
… where every parent commits to an active partnership that supports positive dialogue and empowers staff and students to succeed; and
… where every school site is clean, safe and secure and provides an exciting, challenging, technologically advanced learning environment that is designed to deliver a comprehensive, creative and innovative curriculum.
It is our vision to make trends — not follow them.
