Ann Arbor Student Building Industry Program



Building Homes & Neighborhoods for 46 years!

The Ann Arbor Student Building Industry Program provides Ann Arbor's high school students with a unique learning experience. Through the actual construction of a new home, from raw land to finished product, students learn the importance of math skills, architectural dimension, job satisfaction, along with teamwork, responsibility and dependability. Upon completion of the program, students have an awareness of the many opportunities and benefits of the construction industry and related fields.

The Ann Arbor Student Building Industry Program began as the dream of representatives of the school system, local businesses, and banking representatives. They believed that high school students could, with proper supervision and assistance, build a quality house.
