Grand River Academy Admissions

At Grand River Academy, we march to the beat of our own success. We realize that some young men need more than a traditional high school education can offer. Whether your son is underachieving in the classroom, making poor decisions that place his future at risk, or struggling to find his place and passions, you need to find the right solution. 

The Academy's all-boys college prep program focuses on excelling students' academic, social, and emotional potential. Together, students and GRA instructors work to overcome specific challenges and rediscover success. Every young man at GRA is taught to push the limits and look beyond themselves to create a future that thrives. We invest in every young man that enters the Academy, as we believe everyone's future can be restored.

At Grand River Academy, we believe the investment in your son's education is one of the most noble actions you can take as a parent or guardian. It demonstrates commitment to learning and the importance of finding a place for your son to be successful.

Our international students play an important role in our education-for-life approach to learning. We value our international students because we know we can help them learn about life in America – but equally because they help our American students learn about the world and life from different and vital perspectives.

Why a Post Graduate Year

The leap from high school to college is a major life event that requires complete preparedness and certainty. Because of the significance that comes with this step in life, more and more young men are choosing to take part in a post-graduate (PG) year.

At Grand River Academy, we know how important it is for your son to feel confident and ready for his next steps in life. Maybe your son needs to:

  • To improve his grades for better college choices
  • To improve his test scores (SAT/ACT) for better college choices
  • To solidify and improve his study and organizational skills
  • To gain another year of maturity before entering college

Whatever his needs are, we’re here to support and guide him as he develops into the total young man – academically, socially, and emotionally.
