Learning is a Core Value in Troy

Quality education is a priority for students of all ages in Troy. More than 12,000 students attend kindergarten through twelfth grade in the Troy School District. Troy is the largest of the seven school districts that serve the community. Troy is one of four school districts in metro Detroit to receive an “A+” rating from the Detroit News, following a comprehensive analysis of school quality factors.

Troy students benefit also from partnerships between educators and the business community. The Chamber’s Troy Business & Education Roundtable (TBERT) Committee works toward its vision of creating a community where business, education and resident efforts are committed to academic and career direction for all students. APT to Succeed, one of the Committee’s most notable initiatives, is a program geared toward “graduating” eighth graders. Business professionals volunteer for one-on-one mock interviews with students to discuss academic achievement, personal time management and teamwork. The program is rewarding for students and business leaders alike.

The entire community benefits from Troy’s award-winning library, which is home to a wide range of books, videos, newspapers as well as career and business resources. The library features computers, a friendly staff, a youth library with special programs throughout the year and a coffee shop.

When it’s time to go back to school, many working adults enjoy the area’s extensive programs that fit into their busy work schedules. From the business curriculum at Walsh College to the design courses at International Academy of Design & Technology, the offerings are first class in Troy.

Also, you might consider registering for one of the hundreds of courses offered through Troy Continuing Education throughout the year. In fact, Troy’s English as a Second Language classes are among the largest in the state.

There’s always something to learn, and somewhere to study it, in Troy.
