West Michigan Academy’s Board of Directors stand firm for safe, secure schools to ensure that every child receives a first-class education.

The Board is focused on student achievement, parent satisfaction, and safe, secure location for learning.

WMAES operates under the public school academy governance structure in which the Academy is authorized (received its charter from) Central Michigan University Board of Trustees. CMU Board of Trustees appoints the WMAES Board of Directors. Members are required to be bona fide citizens of Michigan, undergo criminal records check, and comply with conflict of interest guidelines established by law and CMU.
