How It Works (K-8)

Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy is a tuition-free public school that uses the K12 curriculum. Lessons are delivered through a platform called the Online School, as well as through more traditional methods. Materials like books, CDs, and even science lab supplies are delivered right to your doorstep.

We also partner you and your child with a certified teacher to help guide and track progress through the curriculum. There will be frequent in-person events as well.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized too, so your child will always be well educated and well socialized.

Who is this intended for?

The Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy K–8 program will serve students in grades K–8 who reside within the state of Michigan.

What are the costs?

Because we are part of the public school system, Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy is tuition free. The K12 curriculum is provided free of charge, as well as a loaner computer system, printer and Internet stipend for families who qualify.
