Detroit International Academy for Young Women Celebrates 10 Years with a White Gown Ceremony

Pink Roses, White Gowns and Empowered Young Women

Detroit International Academy (DIA) for Young Women, the only public all girls kindergarten through grade 12 program in the state of Michigan, celebrated its 10th anniversary during the school’s first-ever “white gown” commencement ceremony. The ceremony was held on Thursday, June 4 at the Millennium Centre in Southfield.

More than 60 DIA seniors, for the first time, received their diplomas while wearing beautiful long, white dresses donated and selected by students, with help from staff, contrary to the typical “cap and gown” theme. Preparation for the white gown commencement began last year. Teachers utilized multiple etiquette workshops throughout the year to further prepare the young ladies for the ceremony.
