poster about the Festival of the ArtsWednesday, June 1, 2022, 2:00-4:00 p.m.: Enjoy an afternoon celebrating the work of Dearborn Academy students in the visual arts, wood, metal, jewelry and music programs. Find a variety of items made by our student artisans available for sale to the general public (cash or check only). Donations will also be kindly accepted at the door.


For many years, Dearborn held a biannual Arts and Crafts Sale, but the Covid pandemic interrupted this event. The new Festival of the Arts builds on that beloved tradition while offering a window into the creativity of our Dearborn programs. For many of our students, our specialized workshop programs provide a special entrée into the worlds of work, arts and crafts. 


Join us on June 1st to view and, perhaps, purchase some stunning student work.


Dearborn's Annual Benefit


Prior to the pandemic, the Dearborn Academy Annual Benefit brought supporters, families, faculty, alums, educators and local leaders together in person to celebrate the success of our students and the hard work of and innovative strategies used by our dedicated staff.


Past events have raised funds to support a new music program, purchase equipment for our state-of-the-art shop programs, outfit our gym and start new cutting-edge programs. We expect to resume this much-missed event in 2022.
