The young men who attend Grand River Academy do so for many, different reasons. However, there is one common tie between each member of the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes…the opportunity to reinvent themselves by rediscovering their talents and reigniting their goals. Grand River Academy is truly a place for growth and renewal.

Through small class sizes and individualized instruction, the faculty and staff strive to create a community where students can reinvent themselves - academically, socially and emotionally.

For more information on becoming involved in any of the opportunities listed above, please contact Director of Advancement Kristen Kitchen at 440-275-2811 or

Dear GRA Family:

Yes, the snowflakes were falling fast and heavy that fateful day. The temperature was a tropical eighteen degrees. And my feet were cold, despite the hearty winter boots that I was wearing. However, I never felt more warmth than when I stepped into Armington Hall on February 4, 2013.

On that day, I began my role as Director of Advancement at Grand River Academy and I experienced what I believe many members of the GRA family have experienced – a sense of community. Not only was I greeted by staff and faculty, but I was also welcomed by individual students who literally just stopped by to introduce themselves.

Speaking with these future GRA graduates, I learned far more than any orientation or historical outline could offer me. I learned about their favorite courses, their preferred activities, their hometowns, their families and what their goals were after graduation.

Now, over three years later, I continue to be amazed by our students. And I am humbled at the significant strides we have made collectively as a community. With the various constituents of our school – from our faculty and staff, to our alumni, their parents and our current families, to the long-time friends of GRA and our local community – we have increased volunteerism, established new school events and fundraisers, and surpassed our annual fund goals.

As we expand our advancement programming and build the capacity of The Blue & White Fund this school year, please anticipate various means of communication from the Advancement Team. We want you to be aware of the incredible things happening at Grand River Academy and how you can be involved!
