Students at Henry Ford Early College have a unique opportunity to explore health care career pathways and earn significant college credits while still in high school. As one student remarks, “when I graduate here, I’ll have my associate degree, and I’ll have all of these transferrable credits… when you come here, you’re really going to build your integrity and your time management skills and your work ethic.” The school operates through a partnership between the district, college, and a local health care provider – and is successful thanks to the commitment of all involved to helping students achieve their goals.
