How will you keep your students learning this summer?
On average, it is predicted that students lose about one month’s worth of learning over the summer. With online learning, you can provide your student with flexible opportunities to:
- Keep their minds active & prevent summer brain drain
- Earn or recover credits required for graduation
- Free up space in next year’s schedule
- Take prerequisites for AP courses
- Explore a career interest
- Study a world language
- Practice their math and English skills
- And more!
The best part? — They can accomplish all this without missing out on the family trip or spending time with friends during the summer!
Over 150 summer courses!
During the summer, we offer online courses on over 150 different subjects. Students have 10 weeks to complete summer 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.
Our summer courses have a rolling start date, which means students can start as early as June 3 or as late as June 28. Regardless of their start date, they will have until August 9 to complete their coursework.
With over 23 credit recovery courses, 6 world languages, and a wide array of career-oriented electives from computer programming to veterinary science, our course catalog has many options to suit any student’s needs.

Each student lesson is accompanied by a parent lesson to help you have smart conversations with your child on difficult topics.
