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 34,000 students.
Crossroads Charter Academy Middle/High is named one of Bridge Magazine's Academic State Champions. It is one of 10 charter schools to make the list, and scored the 4th-highest out of those schools. You can read more on Bridges's Academic State Champions here

Byron Center Charter School is awarded an automated external defibrillator (AED) from the Wes Leonard Heart Foundation, a non-profit set up to provide AEDs to schools in need. Principal Thomas Berriman accepted the donation during the Never Forgotten basketball game at Fennville High School.
