Is you had, you would have seen this:

The Academy was incorporated as a non-stock, nonprofit,
tax-exempt corporation under Michigans Nonprofit
Corporation Act. The Academys board of directors,
appointed by BMCC, manages the Academys business,
property and affairs, and sets the Academys educational,
fiscal, and administrative policies, following the
terms of the Academys charter. The Academys board
of directors is responsible for the Academys compliance
with its charter and with all applicable laws. The Academy
has four officers selected from among the sitting
board members. The Academy is considered a government
agency under the Revised School Code and its incorporator,
board members, officers and employees have
government immunity. Members of the Academys
board of directors take an oath as public officials.

It sounds to me like the school in question is a nonprofit that uses a for-profit vendor. Not an unusual thing. Public schools hire private companies -- law firms, accounting firms, bus operators, etc. all the time.

I the case of that particular charter school, it looks like they "outsourced" an awful lot of responsibility to a a private firm. But that's ot the same as saying that the school itself is run for profit. It isn't.
