In 1989 Flint Academy High School closed and the school merged with Southwestern to become Flint Southwestern Academy. During the first year of the merger, the graduating class could chose what school was listed on their diploma, either "Flint Academy", "Southwestern", or "Flint Southwestern Academy". The 2009 closing of Flint Central High School sent many former Flint Central High School students to Southwestern and led to the reopening of McKinley Middle School, which relieved potential overcrowding at Southwestern. Flint Southwestern Academy now serves grades 7-12.
Flint Southwestern Academy is a state and nationally accredited school through the AdvancED/North Central Accreditation of Colleges and Schools.
