Grand Valley State University has a long standing tradition and commitment to providing quality education for students. As part of this mission, the GVSU Board of Trustees seeks to impact public K-12 education through its leadership in Michigan's Charter Schools. GVSU's dedication to fostering choice in K-12 education and positive public reform is stronger than ever.
GVSU chartered its first 3 schools in 1995, serving a total of 350 students. In our 21st year as an authorizer, GVSU charters 71 school buildings, serving over 33,000 students.
A new group of 11th and 12th-grade students came to GVSU for the second week of the Summer Enrichment Camp. The campers represented Canton Preparatory High School, Cornerstone Health + Technology High School, Crossroads Charter Academy, and Taylor Preparatory High School.

Students from five GVSU-authorized high schools came to GVSU for the first week of Summer Enrichment Camp. At the camp the students lived the life of a typical college student - living in the dorms, taking classes, and explore the various departments of Grand Valley. Students who attended the first week represented Michigan Math & Science Academy, University Prep Science & Math High School, University Preparatory Academy High School, Byron Center Charter School, and Grand River Preparatory High School.
