The Detroit Institute of Technology College Prep High School at Cody is committed to empowering each and every student with not only the education they need, but the education they deserve. We believe in preparing our students for college and career by continuously analyzing data in order to personalize the learning experience. All English Language Arts and math classes have at least two teachers in the classroom providing support to our students. We believe in incorporating writing and literacy into each content area in order to prepare our students to be lifelong learners. Our staff is extremely well educated with plenty of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Staff members have degrees from several top universities, including the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University, Northwestern University and Michigan State University, along with experiences in banking, engineering and human resources.
The class of 2013 was DIT’s first graduating class and the students earned about a million dollars worth of scholarship money toward college.
The Detroit Institute of Technology College Prep High School offers a unique curriculum. With multiple teachers in almost every classroom and an average class size under thirty, DIT unitlizes its resources to address students’ needs. We offer not only four years of English Language Arts and math, but also for social studies and science. In social studies, DIT is piloting a course entitled “Big History” which is part of an innovative nationwide effort by the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Credit recovery is available for students as well as after-school tutoring through City Year. ACT Prep is offered not only during the school day, but also an ACT intervention program is available after school.
