DETROIT, Michigan (WDIV) -- Tennis great Andre Agassi was on hand for a grand opening of a new Detroit charter school.

Agassi was a guest at the Southwest Detroit Lighthouse Charter Academy, where music, dance, art and theater are interwoven in the curriculum.

he school's new building comes thanks to Agassi's Canyon-Agassi Charter School Facilities Fund, which builds new schools or renovates existing buildings for charter management companies.

The Southwest Detroit Lighthouse Charter Academy is the first charter school in Michigan to benefit from Agassi's fund. Nationwide, there are roughly two dozen already and plans for more in the coming years.
