I've been in MGLVA for my 8th-12th grades and while at first it was hard to adjust to an online school, all the teachers made it much easier. Everyone is so nice and the counselors will help you with anything. Overall it's a wonderful school to try out!

MGLVA is a great way to school. You are actually able to focus on learning and not the drama and other distractions that public schools offer. MGLVA's teachers are the best teachers I have ever met! If your student is struggling teachers will reach out to them and do everything they can to make sure they succeed! So very grateful for this online learning experience
I joined Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy during my sophomore year, at the beginning, I resisted it, but, as time passed, the online school grew on me. I began to realize how great of a school Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy is. I saw how much the teachers and my peers cared, how supportive they were, and how much they wanted me to succeed, all of which added to my motivation to succeed. I think that is what I will most, the support, inspiration, and motivation I received during my time at Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy from my teachers, as well as my peers.
