Today’s students learn differently. At Michigan Virtual, we believe that we have a responsibility to innovate K-12 learning by designing systems that are more flexible and more equitable to meet the needs of all students, no matter their situation. When you join our team, you get to do work on a daily basis that makes a difference for students, educators, and families in the state of Michigan. It’s a privilege we take seriously. Below you will see the mission, vision, and values that keep us moving forward toward these goals.
In the following videos, some of our colleagues share why they love working at Michigan Virtual:
We want everyone in our Michigan Virtual family to feel like… well, family! The health, well-being, professional growth, and financial security of our employees matter deeply to us. Full-time employees receive the following benefits beginning their first day on the job:
Diversity is more than just a value to us. It’s a moral imperative and a critical component to innovation. To design education systems that meet the needs of all students, we need diverse perspectives from our staff. As an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action employer, we value and encourage applications from women and minorities.

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.
