HFLI at the 2015 National Dropout Prevention Network Conference

Henry Ford Learning Institute and Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School for Art + Design are integral to the learning experience at the National Dropout Prevention Network Conference October 25-28th in San Antonio.

What types of experiences help our students connect school to real life?

They will host a site visit to the school for conference attendees and a number of workshops and sessions that explore the relevant, personalized learning programs (such as design thinking and the school’s intensive career preparation program) and community connections that support student success. 100% of Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School graduates are accepted to college every each year.
