About Washington-Parks Academy

Established in 2009, the Washington-Parks Academy is located in Redford Township, just south of the Detroit border and provides an excellent education to students in grades K-8 in a clean, safe, nurturing environment. Highly-qualified, passionate faculty and staff create challenging, relevant, and meaningful lessons, while caring for the whole child.

Cornerstone utilizes technology to ensure students are competitive, and have many opportunities to master material at their own pace. Building good character is infused in everything we do. We expose students to career options from an early age, so they may explore occupations that align with their purpose and passion. Academic achievement, excellent character, and career awareness provide our students with the tools they will need to pursue complete lives.

Washington-Parks has these wonderful programs and more:

  • Robust Parent-Teacher Organization that supports students and teachers
  • Student financial literacy and banking programs through Michigan First Credit Union
  • National Junior Honor Society
  • After school programming and sports
