HOW IT WORKS
Who can attend?
The Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy (MGLVA) high school program serves students in grades 9–12 who reside in the state of Michigan.
What are the costs?
Because MGLVA is part of the public school system, it's tuition-free. Enrolled families receive the Stride K12 curriculum, as well as a loaner computer, printer, and internet stipend.
Working with Your Teacher
Teachers provide individual and small group assistance via online synchronous sessions called "Class Connects". Students are expected to attend all required Class Connects and meet with their teacher to receive course assistance, tutoring, and instruction.
Expectations for Completing Schoolwork
At MGLVA, student learning and academic growth are paramount. While we offer a level of flexibility, we recognize the importance of classroom pacing and the need for students to complete their work based on set due dates.
MGLVA high school uses a semester-based approach where students are required to earn a passing grade on their assignments and online lessons. Due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success.
Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous Class Connect sessions, along with completing coursework, will help students be successful.
