CEMENT CITY & THE IRISH HILLS
Aim High Academy is located in the small village of Cement City, Michigan (est 1838) in the beautiful "Irish Hills region."
The area is renowned for its beautiful scenery, especially in the summer, with its many rolling hills and larger kettle lakes surrounding the 654-acre (2.65 km2) Hayes State Park. The area also has a chain of smaller kettle lakes along US Highway 12 (US 12, Michigan Avenue) that link to Cambridge Junction Historic State Park which adjoins the Michigan International Speedway.
Irish Hills has a number of resorts, state parks, and lakes as significant attractions, and several family-owned restaurants and bars that offer a variety of different foods and beverages. There are several places to lodge, mostly on lakefront areas. The Michigan International Speedway hosts NASCAR races with about 300,000 fans a year during the racing season of June and August, and the Faster Horses Music Festival visits the Irish Hills in July.
