Now Accepting Phase I Applications

The Eastern Michigan University Charter Schools Office is accepting Phase One applications for new charter schools.  Applications will be received and reviewed on a rolling basis.  The Charter Schools Office is seeking charter schools that will meet a variety of academic needs throughout the region, serving as an extension of Eastern Michigan University’s commitment to high quality academic programming and community commitment.  We are excited about the opportunity to add new schools to our family of charter schools.

 All completed applications will be given serious consideration; the EMU Charter Schools Office is especially interested in applications that emphasize one or more of the following priorities:

  • Proposed school would be located in an area of demonstrated educational need;
  • Proposed school would provide an innovative approach to addressing the educational needs of historically underserved populations;
  • Proposed school would have a well-defined educational theme (i.e. STEM, environmental sustainability, leadership, social justice, classical, globalization, etc.);
  • Proposed school would have a laser focus on addressing academic inequity within the chosen grade configuration;
  • Proposed school would have a plan to establish a strong collaborative relationship with an institution of higher education;
  • Proposed school would have a focus on socio-economic diversity among the student population, building staff and/or governing board.

Please contact Chris Shropshire, Associate Director, Eastern Michigan University Charter Schools Office at (734) 487-2086 or cshrops1@emich.edu with any questions.
