Discover Our Difference
We believe children with a strong moral character and excellent college preparation will excel in any path they choose. We achieve this through our program built on the pillars of moral focus, academic excellence, personal responsibility and parental partnerships.
We Reach Higher
We focus on every child’s unique needs, abilities and interests, provide meaningful instruction and set high-standards to promote academic excellence.
We Build Character
Our Moral Focus curriculum makes virtues like respect, integrity, perseverance and courage part of every school day to build the strong moral character they need to be happy and successful.
We Expect More
We empower students to take personal responsibility for their academic success and character development to help them build the grit and skills they need to tackle any challenge with confidence.
We Work Together
We talk to you about your child’s progress, and offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to build essential parental partnerships.
We Focus on Safety
Students require a safe and orderly place to learn and do their best. At Vanderbilt Charter Academy, safety practices are in place which include:
- Keeping our doors locked - all visitors are required to check in at the office before going into the school.
- We provide safety training to all staff and students.
- Bullying is not tolerated and students are expected to be kind to others and demonstrate respect and courtesy at all times.
Spotlight: Vanderbilt Earns “A” Grade in Michigan’s Best Public Elementary Schools
Vanderbilt Charter Academy earned an “A” grade from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy on their 2019 Michigan Context and Performance (CAP) Report Card. Schools that are “beating the odds” stand out by this measure.
“Beyond raw test scores, the CAP report card helps parents see more clearly what kind of impact their school has on student learning,” said Ben DeGrow, director of education policy.
