Founded on National Grandparents Day in 2011 while living with his Granny Grit, GrandparentsAcademy.com was inspired by the life-changing lessons and experiences Aaron Larsen received from his grandparents. After graduating college during the Great Recession, Aaron went to "Grand School", spending four years living with his grandparents in his early 20s. After caring for his Grandpa Grit in his final year of life, Aaron created the world's first online academy for grandparents designed to help them grow meaningful relationships and rich legacies with their loved ones. To date, GrandparentsAcademy.com resources have reached millions of grandparents worldwide.


To celebrate, empower and equip grandparents with life-changing educational experiences and resources that help them grow meaningful relationships and rich legacies with their loved ones.


GrandparentsAcademy.com serves grandparents of all backgrounds. From long distance grandparents to live in grandparents, grandparents raising their grandchildren and those who are undeservedly alienated from them. Our amazing students are intentional grandparents who love their grandkids, are lifelong learners, and wish to cultivate a lasting legacy. GrandparentsAcademy.com is where grandparents go to grow.
