Curiosity. Critical Thinking. Global Perspective. Creativity. Wonder. For generations, Cranbrook has fostered these skills and mindsets in our students while delivering on the promise of readying our students to excel, both at the colleges of their dreams and in life.
It is no surprise to us that so many of our alumni credit Cranbrook as one of the biggest factors in their success and happiness in life, and that so many of they have gone on to shape the world in real and profound ways.
Cranbrook’s historic, 319-acre campus boasts resources unparalleled by any preparatory school environment in the world. On campus, students have access to world-class artistic, scientific, and historical collections, not to mention the expert staff of the Institute of Science, Art Museum and Art Academy, and the Center for Collections and Research.
Department X has interdisciplinary courses that include topics such as entrepreneurship and social justice. In place of taking classes during the final month of school, seniors can pursue an experience of their choosing. Recent projects have included shadowing a cardiovascular team at a nearby hospital, assisting in the promotions department of the Detroit Tigers, conducting cell research at the University of Michigan Medical School, and working at the Detroit Zoo.
