Chartered by Grand Valley State University, Kalamazoo Covenant Academy is a high school for students ages 16-22 who have previously dropped out or are at-risk of not graduating on time. We offer students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma. Our tuition-free school gets students on track and prepares them for life beyond high school. We accommodate busy schedules and difficult living arrangements by allowing students to work at their own pace and attend class four hours a day, year round.
We partner with a computer-based, K-12 education service for alternative schools, guided by caring and compassionate staff to educate our students. Our teachers are experienced, qualified and certified in their fields to ensure each student receives a quality education.
Our staff choose to work at Kalamazoo Covenant Academy because they believe all children can learn and every student deserves to be treated with absolute respect and unconditional love.
Students attend class for just 4 hours a day, but are welcome to stay all day.
Morning Session: 7:30 AM-11:30 AM
Afternoon Session: 11:30 AM-3:30 PM
Evening Session: 3:00 PM-7:00 PM (M-Th)
Many of our students are behind in credits and need more time to work towards graduation.
Open throughout the summer, our school offers year-round opportunities to earn a high school diploma.
