Award-winning course content & high student pass rates

Our student pass rate is significantly higher — more than 25 percentage points higher — than the statewide average for virtual learning. In part, this is due to our quality curriculum and emphasis on supports for online learners.

Many of our courses are evaluated by Quality Matters — a nonprofit organization and recognized leader in quality assurance for online learning — to help us ensure our learners receive a high-quality curriculum. In 2017, we received the Quality Matters Make a Difference for Students Award for Outstanding Impact by a K-12 Organization.

In 2005, we were accredited by AdvancED, a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners benefit from a quality education. We were subsequently re-accredited in 2010 and 2016.

You want the very best for your child. Michigan Virtual supports all of your homeschool efforts with 200+ online courses, AP courses, summer enrichment programs, state-certified teachers and more.

Get course costs covered through your local school district

If you’re a homeschool parent looking to supplement your child’s education with online courses, it may be worth talking to the principal or superintendent of your local public school district to ask whether they offer any of the following:

  • A homeschool partnership program
  • Seat-time waivers for homeschool students, or
  • Opportunities for homeschool students to take non-core electives on a part-time basis.

Some schools are more familiar with homeschool partnerships than others, but it never hurts to ask! Principals are typically out of the building for the entire month of July, but superintendents work year-round and may be able to help you during this time if you are unable to get in contact with the principal.
