The GRA Difference

Grand River Academy has a rich history of helping each young man activate his potential and prepare him for college and life.

Grand River Academy embraces a 360-degree philosophy to education.

With a devoted faculty and nurturing community, our boys grow academically, socially and emotionally. This 360-degree approach leads to a high percentage of the student body making the honor roll and discovering great success in the classroom. This philosophy encourages each young man to be himself and activate his true potential. Students graduate from GRA with the knowledge and ability to lead a successful life.

We have 100 boys for 100 different reasons.

Some boys may have been academically underserved in their previous schools. Others want a caring and structured environment that is conducive to their success. Some boys may have learning differences that aren’t being addressed with the necessary strategy or resources. Whatever the reason, our boys find that Grand River Academy is a place they can be themselves, rediscover their passions, and prepare themselves for college.

Our boarding school atmosphere is a special place for growth.

To give our boys an experience set apart from other college prep boarding schools, the experience outside the classroom is just as valuable as the classroom experience. Our Student Life Program focuses on community building, forging friendships and teaching our young men how to navigate adolescence.

As a small boarding school, we know our students.

Our class sizes are intentionally small - on average just 7 students. Our teachers and administrators learn who our students are, what they need to be successful, and monitor their progress. Faculty members are available after the class day ends for special help and study sessions. The on-campus support, individualized attention and investment in each boy's success leads to a positive academic, social and emotional development.

Our program is designed to give your son every opportunity to find success.

I invite you to explore the contents of our website. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about how a Grand River Academy education will help your son find success, fill out the form and Kari Roberts, Director of Admission, will contact you.
