Welcome to our classrooms

Whether it's got four walls, airplanes, snowshoes, chickens or no physical space at all, a charter classroom can take many forms. Most importantly, we teach where our passions thrive. 

History enriched

Located directly within the walls of the prestigous Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Henry Ford Academy integrates rich history into daily learning, a far stretch from your average classroom or school.

Traditional class

In 2017, Wellspring Preparatory High School in Grand Rapids was ranked as the No. 1 high school in Michigan. While the school looks and feels like a traditional education space, they emphasize character & compassion.

College - focused

At Lake Superior Academy in Sault Ste. Marie, the hands-on montessori and environmental focus enables teachers to individualize learning in small classes and connect with the U.P.'s natural elements. 

Virtual & blended

Virtual and blended-learning charter schools, such as MI Intl. Prep School, offer flexibility for students who either need a nontraditional schedule, or who have struggled in a traditional classroom enviornment. 

Environmental & Ag

Several charter schools embrace concepts of enviornmental sustainability and agriculture. Countryside Academy in Benton Harbor boasts a 98 acre campus with a focus on enviornmental science. 



Located inside the Gerald R. Ford Intl. Airport, West MI Aviation Academy is one of the highest performing high schools in the state. Students can pursue a path in aviation and even graduate with a pilot's license.


Culturally integrated

Fine arts focus
