State Street Academy is a Michigan public school academy chartered through Bay Mills Community College and our ESP is Access Point. State Street Academy’s educational goal is to prepare students to be creative, intuitive, and analytical thinkers with a solid understanding of the history of ideas.
The Academy began operations in 2001-2002 and currently offers Preschool through fifth grade programs. We also have a special education program to serve the needs of students with special needs. Our staff also includes two full time intervention teachers, who provide additional instruction to students who may need extra help in all core academic areas. State Street Academy offers physical education to all K-5 students. We have recently teamed up with Studio 23 to provide art instruction to all of our students.

State Street Academy Academy students are assessed daily by their classroom teacher. Assessment is a vital part of learning and instruction. Students are also assessed regularly to help monitor their progress toward grade level goals. Assessments used include NWEA, AIMSweb, Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention and various other assessments which provide teachers with the necessary data to make instructional decisions.
State Street Academy Academy students participate in all state mandated assessments such as the M-Step.
State Street Academy offers a complete special education program and must comply with all state and federal laws related to special education. Special education students will have an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) written for them annually. This plan must be implemented in a least restrictive environment. A special education parent handbook will be provided to all parents whose child participates in the program. Please contact the school social worker, the special education teacher or CAO for further information.

State Street Academy offers Federal Title I services, which are designed to assist students who are struggling in all core academic areas. These federal funds are based on the percentage of free and reduced lunch count data. Title I funds are used to hire intervention teachers, instructional paraprofessionals, curriculum supplies, and professional development. The Academy has a Title I parent committee which allows parents to have input into how the Title I program is implemented and designed.
State Street Academy implements the use of technology to enhance the teaching and learning process in the classroom. Two brand new Chromebook carts are used to provide modern technology for instructional use to support student achievement.
Breakfast and lunch are served FREE to all students. Extra or cold lunch milk is $0.35. Sandwiches are available in place of the main menu item daily. No child will be discriminated against because of race, handicap, national origin, gender, or age. Complaints to USDA Director, Office of Civil Rights, (202) 720-5969.
