About AIMS

The Association of Independent Michigan Schools (AIMS) was founded in 1989 to be an educational and professional community for schools that meet its membership standards. To be considered independent, a school must be not-for-profit, be governed by its own Board of Trustees, and not be reliant on government funding for support.
