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.

The GVSU Charter Schools Office is an accredited charter school authorizer that furthers this mission by establishing innovative and high-performing educational opportunities. Schools within GVSU's portfolio receive access to professional learning opportunities, school and governance support, and graduate education scholarship programs that they typically could not attain on their own.

Our goal as a Charter Schools Office is to leverage the power of GVSU to improve and support the public schools we charter, as well as to join together professors, practitioners, policymakers, and communities in new ways to solve problems in education.

During the 2020-2021 school year, GVSU will serve as the authorizer for 78 charter public schools, serving approximately 34,000 students in grades K-12.
