K-12 Connect is committed to equipping students with the tools and resources they need to positively shape their lives, future professions, and communities. K–12 Connect stands as a gateway for the university and its students to connect and engage with K–12 schools, families, and students to support them throughout their educational journey.
Grand Valley State University’s K-12 Connect program provides individualized K-12 academic support to students through virtual, high-dosage tutoring services. While K-12 Connect currently partners largely with Michigan school districts, the program is expanding to service districts across the US. K-12 Connect tutoring is flexibly designed, with tutoring offered in and outside of school, seven days a week. Tutors are highly trained and work in a community-based learning environment with ongoing coaching and collaborative peer and professional support. Additionally, tutors are given opportunities to earn literacy credentials.
