About us....a school like no other!
West Michigan Academy of Arts and Academics
West Michigan Academy of Arts and Academics Mission - Empowering students to reach their ultimate personal success through the unique integration of arts and academics.
It is important to have connections. We are building and promoting connections with the arts. We take field trips to local art museums and shows. We host numerous art exhibits and shows. We produce and put on many shows of our own. We are proud of our connections with local artisans, musicians, actors, and higher education programs. We are chartered by Grand Valley State University and we are proud of the art focus we are able to grow with this amazing institute of higher education! Long live the ARTS!
Those Who Inspire
Faculty and Staff
WMAAA was a dream that was started over 20 years ago with some forward thinking local artists and educators. They believed that students and families should have a choice in their education. They partnered with GVSU and started a small school in Robinson Township.
As interest in their program grew they needed to have a new space and moved to the current location in Spring Lake - just off the highway. The school grew and was able to add expansions including a beautiful 450 seat theater space, dance studio, black box theater, and creative spaces. We are so proud to continue this legacy of supporting choice and a strong arts-integration foundation for students.
We would love to have you be part of our journey if you believe this is the right space for you! We are excited to see what our upcoming years will bring!
