Michigan Virtual FALL 2023

Virtual Learning Coordinator: Tina Kohler:

These courses are offered through the Partnership to Homeschool and Private school students; they are also available to Virtual Academy and on-campus students through your building counselor.

Michigan Virtual challenges students who want to learn in a different way, using the latest in technology to explore courses in a flexible, personalized environment. Online high school and middle school courses are taught by highly-qualified, Michigan-certified teachers. Michigan Virtual is accredited by AdvancED.

  • Time Commitment: Semester sessions are 20-weeks long: Students must be able to spend 1 or more hours per day in the course to be successful. If your student is not able to make this time commitment, please re-consider taking a MV course.
  • Scoring System: Michigan Virtual does not award credit or diplomas, but students receive a completion certificate recognized by local school districts that award credit and diplomas. A final score out of total points earned will also be available for conversion to a letter grading system.
  • Technology Requirements: Students will require a computer device with headphones, a microphone, webcam, up-to-date Chrome Web Browser, and access to YouTube.

*All school personnel have a Personal Identification Number (PIC) number from the Michigan Department of Education.

*All Partnership classes, including virtuals, are Project-Based Learning courses. Every student taking a virtual course needs to complete a project of his or her choosing that correlates to the Learning Goal (why are you taking this class?). The project for the Michigan Virtual classes could be in the form of a portfolio, written essay, video presentation, or poster depicting what was learned and must be completed and submitted to virtual coordinator by the end of the semester.
