How it Works

While Grand River Academy enables truly individualized learning and flexibility in pace, schedule and learning styles. It also comes with the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and assessment that parents and students need and expect. This program is full time, meaning it replaces a traditional classroom environment with a location chosen by the family.

  • Parents of children in grades K-6 can expect to spend 3-5 hours per day supporting their child’s education.
  • In grades 7-8, learning coach time typically decreases to about 2 hours per day as your child becomes more independent.
  • By high school, the parental learning coach role continues to be an important, supportive element; however, a student is expected to manage his or her own time with greater independence.
  • You can expect that your child will spend 5-6 hours per day on coursework.
  • Regular assessments are built into the courses to help teachers pinpoint areas of difficulty.
  • Students can take two cross-over classes at their home-attendance school.
  • Students can take courses at Career Center, Western Colorado Community College (WCCC), and Valley School.
