Travel to the United States

Travel Arrangements

When making your travel arrangements to the United States, be sure to arrive at the Gerald R. Ford Grand Rapids International Airport (Airport code GRR). Our Summer Academy staff will be there with a shuttle to welcome you to the United States. Calvin College is located a 15 minute drive from the Grand Rapids airport. We are happy to drive you to the airport at the end of the Summer Academy for your flight departure.

Alternate Arrival Locations

If your flight arrives in Chicago or Detroit, we will not be able to pick you up from the airport. However, you may choose to arrange your own ground transportation through Greyhound Bus Lines or Amtrak to Grand Rapids. Our staff is able to pick you up from the Grand Rapids Greyhound bus station or Amtrak train station.
