The P-20 Cradle-to-Career Campus at Marygrove will be comprised of educational opportunities from prenatal to Pre-K, K-12 to post-secondary graduate, as well as wrap-around services and community engagement programs. At full capacity, the school will serve roughly 1,000 Detroit children and their families, primarily living in the surrounding Livernois-McNichols neighborhoods. The initiative represents a $50 million community investment on the campus of the former Marygrove College in northwest Detroit, which is the largest philanthropic investment into a Detroit neighborhood in the city’s history.
The future of Detroit depends on an investment in its youngest residents.
Seven partners are currently supporting the P-20 Campus initiative and share one primary goal: To educate children.
Operating the Early Childhood Education Center
Managing campus operations and stewarding the campus as a resource for high-quality uses in the community
Operating the School at Marygrove, a public school offering grades K-8 and high school
Hosting a new Teaching Residency program
Supporting the development and programmatic design of the Early Childhood Education Center
Private, national foundation funding the P-20 project
Facilitating community engagement for the partners
Marygrove College – prior to its Dec. 31, 2019 closure – was instrumental to the evolution of the Marygrove P-20 partnership.

Detroit has always been one of the most artistic and culturally significant cities, and both the Marygrove Conservancy and the Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship (Detroit ACE) aim to support and invest in the city’s creative industry, arts and culture organizations and artists.
The Marygrove Conservancy in partnership with Detroit ACE are conducting a comprehensive census to determine the breadth and depth of Detroit’s creative workforce, making it easier to improve arts and culture programming and secure funding. All members of Detroit’s artist community are invited to complete the online census. Take a few moments to claim your creativity! Take the Detroit Creative Economy Census.
