Vanguard Charter Academy provides a seamless K-12 educational experience with Grand River Preparatory High School, a high school located in Kentwood, Michigan, that falls under the National Heritage Academies portfolio.
At Grand River Prep, students will have the opportunity to be challenged beyond average classroom learning. We offer AP and dual enrollment courses, a Moral Focus program that supports character growth, and the Early College Program where your student can earn an associate degree for free.
We emphasize extracurricular pursuits and ways to give back to the community. The result is college-ready students who not only stand out in the classroom but also as a person.
