Our School

Barclay Hills students using laptops

Barclay Hills offers many of the same core curriculum classes found in a traditional high school, but many classes are career focused. All classes are aligned to Common Core or Michigan Merit Standards.

All students take a series of career courses.

  • Careers I and II teach financial responsibility, entrepreneurship, business skills, and explore career interest.
  • Careers III and IV has students complete a resume and cover letter, practice interview skills, learn soft skills, complete college and financial aid applications, and volunteer at area businesses. Students use the WIN for WorkKeys program.

For students interested in credit retrieval, all credits earned at Barclay Hills can be transferred to traditional high schools. For students who choose to complete their education at Barclay, features of our high school and G.E.D. program are listed below.
