Our Courses, Our Teachers

Every student who takes a Michigan Virtual online course receives feedback and guidance from a highly qualified, Michigan-certified teacher trained on effective practices for online pedagogy. Our student pass rate is significantly higher — more than 20 percentage points higher — than the statewide average for virtual learning.

Our extensive course catalog of 300+ teacher-led, online courses allows schools to expand their curriculum, work around scheduling conflicts, and provide opportunities for students to learn at their own pace in a supportive environment.

Students can choose to enroll in online courses in core subject areas, Advanced Placement, dual enrollment, world languages, and fun electives such as astronomy, archaeology, veterinary science, oceanography, cybersecurity, and more!

Our Courses, Your Teachers

Your school or district can build capacity and empower local staff to teach online with our new collaborative partnership model.
