Making School Matter – University Liggett School & The Academic Research Program

PREMIERED MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2020 AT 7:30PM ET

How can we make school matter to kids? Making School Matter – University Liggett School & The Academic Research Program is the culmination of a four-year documentary project that followed four students attending University Liggett School in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. All high school-aged students at University Liggett School participate in the Academic Research Program, a four-year curriculum that takes a subject they are passionate about and turns it into an in-depth research project that teaches them the skills they will need to prepare for success in college. Over four years the students mature, their interest change and develop, and by graduation they have become experts on topics that could end up changing the world.
