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.

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.
