Announcing Granville Recreation District’s newest program offering, GRD Drive Academy

Are you a student who is 15 years and 5 months old who is ready to take driver’s education? If you answered yes, we have the opportunity for you. Students now have a convenient way to take driver’s education! 

The Granville Recreation District is now offering driver’s education through our GRD Drive Academy. We recently received our Ohio Department of Public Safety Licensing and are now in the process of hiring and training instructors. We are excited to be able to offer driver’s education to the Granville High School students conveniently during their school day starting in the Fall of 2022. Our spring session is now full. We will be offering classes this summer, one session each month. Please look for that information to be posted by the end of March.
