Our Vision

Detroit Public Safety Academy (DPSA) prepares Detroit's next generation of first responders and leaders in public safety.

Our Goals

Detroit Public Safety Academy will: 

  • Become the high school of choice because of its academic rigor and by meeting and/or exceeding SAT and M-Step standards.

  • Continue to maintain a high graduation rate. 

  • Embed character education into the curriculum: respect, responsibility, integrity, initiative, service, sacrifice and leadership.

  • Involve all levels of public service professionals as mentors, coaches and teachers. 

  • Reduce disparity in the public safety field by encouraging larger numbers of women and students of color to consider these fields.

  • Provide a service learning component that assists local communities to become healthier through volunteering.
