Greenspire Opens Enrollment For Ninth, Tenth Grades

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 18, 2021

The Greenspire High School will begin accepting applications for grades 9 and 10 starting February 15 for the 2021-2022 school year.

Greenspire announced last summer it had received a $650,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Education to begin planning for a high school expansion. The new Greenspire High School will be an extension of the current middle school program, The Greenspire School, which is located on the grounds of the Grand Traverse Commons (pictured). Both programs are free public charter schools sponsored by Grand Valley State University.

Greenspire High School students will have the option to earn their high school diploma and an associate’s degree at the same time through a “middle college” program in partnership with Northwestern Michigan College. The curriculum will focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), industry partnerships, and environmentally-centered, project-based learning.

During their freshman year, high school students will decide on one of four pathways to pursue: Agricultural Science, Freshwater Studies, Architecture Studies/Applied Environmental & Digital Engineering, or Stewardship Studies. Greenspire High School will open in the fall of 2021 in classrooms located in the University Center of the Northwestern Michigan College campus on Boardman Lake. The school will initially serve students in grades 9 and 10, and will add grade 11 in year two and grade 12 in year three. Information about Greenspire High School and application details are available online here.
