How It Works (High School)

At Michigan Virtual Charter Academy, students can be who they are, and then some.

Imagine a public high school program that lets students set their sights on a range of post–school goals, and provides students the freedom to explore their interests. From career preparation to college prep, our programs is designed to help students maximize their ability to succeed after high school on whatever path they choose.

While the high school program is designed to give students the freedom they need, students aren't in it alone. We provide a dynamic team of teachers to lead instruction and create a connected school community.
