Welcome to Detroit, a vibrant tapestry of culture, history, and excitement! The Gehring Academy takes place in the glittery GM Renaissance Center (RenCen), offering beautiful views of the Detroit River as well as a glimpse into neighboring city Windsor, Ontario, Canada. RenCen is the most striking feature of the city’s skyline and home to the world headquarters of General Motors. Its seven towers are interconnected, meaning you can eat, drink, shop or see a movie without stepping foot outside. When you exit the building, you’re just steps away from the city’s lush green spaces, including Belle Isle Park and the city’s recently renovated RiverWalk. If you’re up for exploring, bring your passport to travel across the border!
