Welcome to Ben Davis Ninth Grade Center! We are the proud home of all freshmen students in the MSD of Wayne Township. Our mission is ensuring our students get off to a great start in high school and are on track to graduate. We are Ninth Grade Specialists and focused on helping our students grow as they transition to high school. We support our students with a vareity of strategies including our 7 career themed academies that allow students to work closely with their core teachers and monitor their progress. There are many connections to college and careers throughout our curriculum and the overall experience of BDNGC students. Career exploration is a purposeful part of our curriculum along with research on colleges and universities including a college field trip for each academy. We are proud of the results our building achieves reflected in the graduation rate of Ben Davis High School and Ben Davis University High School. Graduation rates for both schools have steadily risen since the Ben Davis Ninth Grade Center has been in existence.

Moving to Wayne Towhship has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. My children's grades are absolutely better because of the genuine concern from the teachers. It makes my girls want to push for excellences vs. just bearly making it.

As a current student of the ninth grade center, I say that the school stands as an average. I think that the discipline area of the school as probably one of the best. As far as curriculum/ academics I think that they are good at giving one on one help but it gets pretty hectic when you re in a class with about twenty-some students. The staff is pretty supportive and takes time to see how your day is but academically, you have to be the responsible student and tell them you need additional help. I highly recommend the Ben Davis university team, your put on this team with kids who want to succeed and follow through with they re goals of what they want to become in college. I would give this school an average rating only because of the fights and problems that always seem to be reoccurring.
