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. As we enter our 20th year as an authorizer, GVSU charters 64 school buildings, serving over 32,000 students.
