George Crockett Academy provides a nurturing, respectful and stimulating academic environment, committed to the empowerment of responsible citizens who are critical thinkers in a global society.
As stakeholders, parents and teachers are partners in the development of our children's education. We encourage and support parent visits to the school, conferences and open communication with teachers. Our weekly newsletter, The Crockett Review, is published Wednesday of each week during the school year. The newsletter informs parents of classroom and school-wide activities.
The Parent, Teacher, Student Organization (PTSO) meets monthly to share ideas. Annual events that provide family involvement include Donuts for Dad, Muffins for Mom, Grandparents Day, Mother/Son-Father/Daughter dance, Rip-the-Runway Fashion Show, Soul Food Taste Fest, Science Night, Literacy Night, Open House and Annual Recognition Ceremony for parent volunteers.
George Crockett Academy depends on the community to provide resources for continued improvement. The school developed interactive learning, mentoring and internship programs with local high schools and universities, including University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, Wayne State University, Wayne County Community College, Marygrove College, University Preparatory High School and University of Detroit High School.
The academy enjoys a close working relationship with the Detroit Library main branch and is involved with Mosaic Youth Theatre, Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program, Think Detroit PAL, The Children's Center and Mercy Project. Additional community involvement activities include Metro Science Fair, Science Olympiad, Future Cities, Neighborhood clean-up, Career Day and local soup kitchen.
