Grand River Academy students will now have new courses available to study during the month of January on (and off) campus! GRA’s Winter Term will provide students with the opportunity to learn and gain credit while fully immersing themselves in a given educational topic.
During the month of January, between the first and second semester, students can choose two, two-week courses that are designed to not only have students learn within the classroom but also the community and even the world.
A recent carnival was held where students were able to pick from a variety of courses. Topics ranged from financial literacy to food and culture. Check out the pictures from the event!
