“Our school has completely changed for the better since we trained with STEM.org. Auburn Hills Christian School serves children from age 3 to grade 12, so it can be difficult to find trainings that cater to all of the grade levels represented by our staff. STEM.org not only took into account the grade level taught by each educator, but also gave us ways to work together toward a common goal. Additionally, the support we have received after becoming certified has been invaluable.”
— Kristin (Naughton) Griffith, STEAM Program Coordinator, Auburn Hills Christian School

A credential you can trust

Basic photo editing software or copier skills allows anyone to duplicate a paper certificate. STEM.org automatically submits each credential instantly into the blockchain which creates a permanent record that is impossible to change or alter. This system cryptographically seals a record of all achievements, resulting in the ability for third parties to verify with absolute certainty that a record has not been falsely created once issued. This industry-pioneering, methodology of protection eliminates fraud and technologically ensures the credibility of STEM.org trustmarks.

“This STEM certification Course is the first of its kind to bring certified and non-certified teachers endless possibilities within STEM education, making professionals more marketable. There are easy-to-follow chapters that allow educators to understand what goes into STEM curricula. The content of this course will make anyone more prepared to understand and lead in STEM in any environment. I have saved a lot of time lesson planning and even used the modules to earn extra money, by running a drone camp.”
— Dana Hedke, Educator, Dearborn Public School District

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
