COLLEGE PREPARATION AND PLACEMENT AT GRA

We take pride in helping our boys realize their full potential. Grand River Academy’s academic philosophy aims to help each young man learn how to learn. This, and the process of learning is reflected in each class. Study skills, time management techniques, note-taking strategies and test preparation methods are taught and reinforced in all aspects of our boarding school environment.

For us, it is not just about getting our boys into a college or university; it is about developing the attributes needed to be successful, ethical and capable citizens.
