Kendall Schroeder, Head of School

Originally from Hersey, Michigan, Kendall Schroeder graduated from Central Michigan University and began his teaching career in a traditional public school, teaching 1st grade. He became intrigued by the charter school movement and jumped at the chance to be a part of something new and exciting. Mr. Schroeder served as principal of Crossroads Charter Academy for several years. He was also able to be a part of Michigan’s first state championship by a charter school, serving as head coach of the 2004 and 2005 State Champion Girls Cross Country teams. Mr. Schroeder has taken on a new challenge as a part of another start up—Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy. This virtual environment allows him to help families that he hasn’t been able to help in a brick-and-mortar setting. He is honored to be a part of this new endeavor!
