At the heart of the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio’s mission statement is the belief that we must “…preserve, share and encourage exploration of the philosophy of Alden B. Dow through public access to educational programs, tours and research opportunities…” Sign-up for one of our exciting programs to help your students develop critical thinking skills while fostering an appreciation for architecture, design, and the humanities!


One of our core programs, “The Chemist and The Architect”, is a dynamic program designed for students that meets both our mission and the goals of the Michigan State Grade Level Content Expectations in Social Studies. We also work with various age levels and grades to develop programs that reinforce curricular objectives. We are happy to work with you to develop a program that strengthens your content goals.
