Michigan Virtual for Students offers a variety of courses in the summer, including required courses like math, science, history, English and six world languages, and elective courses like Digital Photography, Film Studies and Web Design Basics.
What are the benefits of Michigan Virtual courses?
Michigan Virtual courses are led by highly-qualified, Michigan-certified teachers. Michigan Virtual is accredited by the North Central Association and the Commission on International and Trans-regional Accreditation, meaning that Michigan Virtual courses exceed essential standards of educational quality. Michigan Virtual core courses are approved by the NCAA. Students take Michigan Virtual summer courses to make up credit, to get ahead and for personal enrichment.
Michigan Virtual also offers Student Direct courses in the summer, and all year long. These courses are teacher-less (in subject areas like algebra, biology, economics, English, geography and world history), but offer a high degree of learner independence. Although no Michigan Virtual instructors are assigned to Student Direct courses they require the parent to serve as the mentor if the student’s school is not involved.
Parents and students, before you enroll, please consider:
- If your school provides summer courses through Michigan Virtual for Students, please work with your school on course selection.
- If your school does not provide a summer school option, check with your school to make sure the course you complete will be accepted for credit.
