What if your children could learn in a brand new way that instills rigorous educational fundamentals with an innovative core curriculum along with curiosity, creativity, and inspired learning? The Flint Cultural Center Academy is the school that offers students a unique experiential learning education combined with daily activities and programs at the Cultural Center institutions — Flint Institute of Arts, Flint Institute of Music, Flint Public Library, Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, The Whiting, and Applewood. Our public, nonprofit charter school currently serves 600 students in grades kindergarten through eighth. Flint Cultural Center Academy will continue to grow until we are a full K-12 school.
The Flint Cultural Center Academy builds on the strengths of the Flint Cultural Center institutions to create an experiential learning opportunity that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the region. It also marks the next step in efforts to strengthen the education continuum in Flint — from cradle to college and career.
Enrollment is open to students living in Flint, Genesee County, and — in accordance with state law for public charter schools — elsewhere in Michigan. If enrollment applications for a particular grade outnumber the available seats, students will be chosen by a lottery system.
