“As an online school we can provide a unique level of support to our students,” says head of school Kendall Schroeder. “By building positive relationships, we partner with our families to ensure student success.”

Advanced learners can progress more quickly through lessons, while those needing more support can take the time they need. Michigan-certified teachers are available for one-to-one online meetings, and regularly communicate with students and families via phone and email.

Students have the opportunity throughout the year to meet their teachers and classmates in person, through school outings, field trips and social events.
