Michigan Virtual - Spring 2024

Virtual Learning Coordinator: Tina Kohler: hspvirtuals@shamrocks.us

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.

*Please note: All Partnership classes, including virtual classes, are Project-Based Learning courses. ​All students must complete a project for these classes. It is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Virtual classes.  You will receive an info letter for your Virtual class with your registration confirmation which will include the date deadline to drop your virtual class. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class.
