Macomb Academy, Daily Living Skills & Employment Training

Our Curriculum

Our daily living skills curriculum—based on the Michigan Department of Education’s Careers and Employability Standards—integrates 30 community-based student intern sites and over 25 daily living-focused classes. The classes we offer address needs in these areas: personal-social skills, daily living skills, and independent living skills. All of the departments within our school work hard to provide the services and support our students need to thrive. Our students take four classes per semester (eight per school year).
