GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 12, 2014) — The West Michigan Aviation Academy is preparing to graduate its first class, four years after Dick DeVos announced he was starting the charter public school.

The school started in an old hangar at Ford International Airport. The very first class consisted of just 80 freshmen, and only 10 of those students were girls.

Because the West Michigan Aviation Academy is a public charter school, there is no tuition. However, there is an application process, and because of its growing popularity, there is also a lottery to decide who is admitted.
