I love Michigan Virtual Charter Academy! I am a high-school freshmen and even though we do not need to get up everyday and go to a school building; we are still getting a great level of education. I personally believe that we are getting a better level of education then we would be if we actually went to a school. Our teachers and staff are amazing; they are always there to help you with whatever you need and because your teacher can help you when not helping other students your education is more based around you. Your teacher gets to know you and your family and work around all the kinks so that you are on the right path; they also want us to know what we are doing with our future after we leave MVCA. I really love Michigan Virtual Charter Academy, but I do wish there was more activity's so we could get to know the people in our learning environment.

I love MVCA! I have been going since I was in seventh grade (2013) and I have had mostly positive experiences with them. I have noticed nothing but constant improvement in the way they run things (such as improvement in the years that I went for state testing in person) or even with their website. Michigan Virtual Charter Academy is definitely one of the better online schools out there, and is extremely intimate+ they make sure to form a bond with the families going to their school. The only downfall, personally, is the lack of extracurriculars. This is to be expected when going to online school. but I am getting to the age where I am filling out college applications and noticing I do not have a lot to write when they ask for school activities! It's not like MVCA has a debate club or anything. Anyways, apart from that, I love MVCA so much.
I have been attending since 9th Grade (Fall 2013).I was really worried I wouldn't receive a good education from this school because I previously was a private school kid, but MVCA EXCEEDED my expectations.I feel like I learned MORE at MVCA.The teachers are so willing to work with you&will go out of their way to make sure you succeed.I like that all live lessons are recorded so I can go back&re-experience class.Very rarely will you encounter someone "mean" here.Everyone is so uplifting &kind.Outside of school work, there aren't many activities for upperclassmen which is super disappointing.The after school clubs make up slightly for no physical interaction with classmates.I actually helped found the Anime Club we have.Not to toot my own horn, but I think it is pretty awesome.The Read-Aloud Café is amazing as well! Its probably my favorite "class" to go to.I am kind of sad this is going to be final year.I love everyone at this school&it has made my high school experience worth while.
