MESICK, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Highpoint Virtual Academy of Michigan (HVAM), an online public-school serving K-12 students around the state is ready to get to work providing Michigan students with the safe and comprehensive education options they need during these historic times.
In the face of a global pandemic, the new school year has been a constant worry for families throughout Michigan. According to one survey, 2/3 of parents support keeping brick and mortar schools closed until there is no risk.
“Families and students need to know there’s a place where they can still work to move their lives forward,” said Mary Moorman, Head of School for HVAM. “Michigan students can get some certainty and continuity here that they may not be getting at other places.”
Since 2016, all HVAM students have had access to a robust curriculum and can attend live virtual classes taught by state-certified online teachers. Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English/language arts, history, and a host of electives including world languages. Teachers regularly communicate with students and their families via email, phone, and during one-on-one meetings.
And HVAM is the only online school in Michigan to offer an Early Middle College Program, where high school students can attend a “13th year” of high school, earning valuable college credits and an Associate’s Degree at no cost.
Students choose online school for a variety of reasons including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. HVAM’s online platform gives students the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and at an appropriate pace for their learning style.
