Charter Schools Office hosting College Prep Week on campus
Posted on July 18, 2019
Grand Valley's Charter Schools Office is hosting College Prep Week, an annual program that brings students from GVSU-authorized charter schools to the Allendale Campus for a week to experience life as a college student.
While on campus, students live in campus housing, participate in mock classes, meet with student organizations and learn about student support services.
A total of 88 students are taking part in the program. The first College Prep Week was held July 7-12, the second began July 14 and runs through July 19.
Students also take classes on ethics, personal finance, accounting, education, allied health sciences, movement science, pre-professional studies, and hospitality and tourism management.
The program also has a cultural component which gives students an opportunity to spend a day exploring the city of Grand Rapids, including several museums, along with a day in Saugatuck learning about the history of Lake Michigan and the lakeshore.
