Education

As ever-changing government regulations become more complicated, schools are continually asked to do more with fewer resources. That’s where we can help, giving you strategic and timely business solutions. You help students learn their ABCs, let us focus on the GAAPs and GASBs.

Through more than 40 years of working with our Michigan and Indiana education clients, we have developed expertise in helping schools of all kinds with the challenges they face. While your students may be struggling through Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and their advanced chemistry textbooks, our team of professionals knows the Yellow Book cover to cover and uses those standards of competence, integrity, and objectivity with every client.

We have served K-12 school districts, private schools, charter schools, and public school academies with budgets ranging from $1 million to $25 million. Our independent membership in the BDO Alliance USA also gives us access to education industry expertise from a national firm. Rest assured, large or small we have the resources to serve your needs.
