Will Your Child Be Attending Early College In The Fall?

In the past, we have sent out “Intention Letters” to find out if your child plans on attending the following fall.  This is important for various reasons

Current 9th Graders
We have several 9th grade applicants who are eligible if a slot becomes available.
Do we enroll your child into their 1st college course in September?

Current 10th-12th Year Students
If college courses are not cancelled before the college deadline has passed, the student/parent is responsible for payment.

Instead of sending out letters this year, we are asking parents to please notify us by email, thornfd@dearbornschools.org of any absences from school (1st day is Tuesday, September 8th) or if you are dropping your child from the program.
