Eighth graders at Timberland Charter Academy in Muskegon were surprised during their promotion ceremony with an announcement of guaranteed admission to Grand Valley if they meet certain criteria.
The announcement was made June 2 during the ceremony at the McLaughlin Road school. Timberland Charter Academy is among the charter schools authorized by GVSU.
The Pathway to GVSU pipeline program grants admission to GVSU for students who qualify. Timberland Charter students must meet general Grand Valley admissions requirements and register for a GVSU Passport to attend college preparedness workshops.
