West Michigan Christian Schools, including Fremont Christian, Grand Haven Christian, Muskegon Christian, New Era Christian and Western Michigan Christian High School and Middle School, is in a Spanish Immersion partnership with Calvin University. This partnership allows our Spanish Immersion students to graduate high school with some college credits in Spanish. If the students choose to continue to their higher education at Calvin and have meet all the requirements in high school they will be granted with a Spanish minor. If the students choose to attend another university some or all the credits may be able to transfer depending on the university requirements. Juniors and seniors will take college level courses through Calvin and will also be able to participate in a three week study abroad experience in a Spanish speaking country. We are excited to offer this program to our immersion students from Fremont Christian, Grand Haven Christian and Muskegon Christian who continue on to Western Michigan Christian High School and Middle School.
