Key dates

Our calendaring structure for summer offers many different options for start and end dates for student courses. Schools and parents can select whichever start or end date option fits best for their academic calendar or their specific situation.

*All times listed reflect the Eastern Time Zone.

Why is summer learning so important?

Summer courses and programs allow students to have structured learning time to help them keep their minds active, bridge knowledge gaps, and prepare for the next school year.

If you’re looking for ways to keep your children learning this summer with safe and structured educational opportunities, consider enrolling them in our online summer school programs.

Over 150 summer courses!

By taking summer courses, students can earn high school credit, take prerequisites, make room in next year’s schedule, and recover credits for courses that they previously failed.

In our summer online classes, students have 10 weeks to complete coursework at their own pace and will be supported along the way by a highly qualified, Michigan-certified online instructor who is an expert in their subject area.

These courses have flexible start date options, which means families can select which option best works for their summer schedule. The majority of our summer courses are designed for high school students (grades 9-12), but we offer do offer a smaller catalog of select middle school courses (grades 6-8).

IMPORTANT: Check with your school counselor before enrolling!

Students should talk to their school counselor before enrolling to ensure our 10-week summer courses will be accepted for credit at their school.

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.
