Learning Support

From study halls built into the daily class schedule, to evening study sessions led by Grand River Academy faculty members, individualized learning support is available to every young man. Tutoring and extra assistance is part of the culture here at Grand River Academy.

It's about maximizing strengths and realizing your son's potential.

Academic support is critical to develop during his time at high school so that he creates study habits and skills that will carry him to success in university. Discover two of the unique ways GRA helps your son to discover the ways he learns best.

Foundations Learning Program

Daily organizational habits to hone study and time management skills, extra support in the classroom, and mindfulness exercises to help to stay focused are just a few of the benefits seen in GRA’s for-credit Foundations Learning Program.



Grand River Academy firmly believes in providing programs that support healthy lifestyles and the enrichment of character through emotional awareness as part of its mission to prepare young men for lifelong success. As such, GRA repurposed the lower level of Shepard Hall as a dedicated space for individual and group therapy, as well as an interactive and recreational therapy component with the hand tool workshop, in conjunction with GRA’s strategic vision.
