Wayne State University invests in future learners through partnership with Burton International Academy

Students at Burton International Academy now have their own small army of Wayne State University Warriors in-house to help pave the way for their future, thanks to a new partnership. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at WSU, with the help of several departments at the university, will provide mentors, set up parent meetings and classroom visits, and offer college and career information to incoming eighth grade Burton International students with the adoption of the academy's middle school wing, which was celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. The partnership will help inform students about the Michigan high school curriculum, while highlighting a range of professional fields and careers–and the ways students can work toward them.
