Helping Students Stay In School

The Student Advocacy Center of Michigan is a unique organization with a proud history of helping students get back into school and stay in school. We are fighting school pushout and dropout every day. There is no other organization like us in Michigan.

Please use this site as a resource to help students experience more success in school. Special features include pages on the rights of specific populations (including students in foster care, facing school discipline, homeless) and our Create-A-Letter resource, providing examples on how to request a special education evaluation and much more. There are also ways for you to get involved in advocating for policy change in Michigan.


The Student Advocacy Center of Michigan works collaboratively with underserved students, and their families, to stay in school, realize their rights to a quality public education, grow and experience success.
