Detroit International Academy for Young Women is the only all-girls public school in Michigan. The school has partnered with The Detroit Zoo and The Michigan Humane Society to develop a Biomedical Science and Veterinary Medicine career pathway. The program provides students with college credit, internships and scholarship opportunities. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, students are now forced to take all classes online.
