St. Clair County boasts a widely diversified K-12 school community. Within our school districts are 12 high schools, 11 intermediate/junior high schools, 32 elementary schools, 11 public school academies, a technical education learning center, and a special education learning facility. Through these schools, each district provides educational services essential to fulfilling the needs of their communities.
Schools of Choice
The seven public school districts within St. Clair County participate in the contiguous and countywide Schools of Choice program each year as part of their continuing effort to provide a quality education to all students. This countywide Schools of Choice program allows parents and students to choose which public school they would like to attend regardless of where they live in St. Clair County.
Educating our children doesn't always require that a child be in a classroom. St. Clair County RESA owns and operates the Pine River Nature Center in Wales Township to provide hands-on environmental education opportunities. It also coordinates "Great Parents, Great Start" programming for children ages 0-5 and their families, and offers the Math & Science Academy for a select number of gifted and talented high school students.
St. Clair County is a great place to live and work – and it's also a great place to learn. Academically, St. Clair County schools provide high-quality programs at all grade levels. That
quality is reflected in our students, who consistently score above average in state assessment tests.
The Baker College system has over 35,000 students in more than 100 programs on 12 campuses throughout Michigan. The Port Huron campus is located on the west side of town, convenient to I-69 and I-94, and only five minutes from the Blue Water Bridge, the international border crossing, which connects Port Huron with Sarnia, Ontario. Convenience, safety, and quality are among the reasons students from throughout the eastern shoreline of Michigan and the western shoreline of Ontario, Canada choose to make a better life for themselves at the Port Huron campus.
