Three Ways to Get On And Learn!

GOAL Line Transportation

Since August 2018, Northwest Detroit families have benefited from an unprecedented partnership between charter school operators, Detroit Public Schools Community District officials, teachers, parents, and city leaders to improve education opportunity for Detroit students. It’s called the GOAL (Get On And Learn) Line— a safe, reliable, and free transportation program!

The GOAL Line picks up K–8 students from any of the ten schools on the bus loop closest to their home, transporting them to the participating school of their choice, the afterschool program at Northwest Activities Center, and back to one of the ten schools closest to home in the evening. Children who sign up for the GOAL Line receive a swipe card to use at pick-up and drop-off points, which sends text notifications to parents. Additionally, adult monitors accompany students on each camera-equipped bus to ensure a safe ride for all.

Application coming in mid-June!

GOAL Line Afterschool Program

The GOAL Line transports students to the Northwest Activities Center for continued enrichment during afterschool hours. Research shows that exceptional afterschool programs have positive effects on children’s social-emotional and mental development, as well as being associated with better grades and decreases in problematic behavior. Students are immersed in free activities:

  • Robotics
  • Basketball
  • Arts and crafts
  • Swimming
  • Academic tutoring
  • Gymnastics

Trained counselors, teachers and security officers are all on site and fully engaged.

Application coming in mid-June!
