LANSING, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 28, 2018--Students and teachers at Insight School of Michigan (ISMI) will start the 2018-2019 school year on September 4, simply by turning on their computers. An online public charter school, ISMI is a tuition-free education option for students across Michigan in grades 6 through 12.

“As we start another school year, we know our students come to us with diverse needs, experiences and goals,” said Teresa Boardman, head of school at Insight School of Michigan. “Regardless of their personal circumstances, our online learning platform and our inspired teachers are here to ensure each student achieves their goals, and is prepared for a bright future.”

ISMI combines innovative technology, a rigorous curriculum and dedicated staff to support each student’s academic and personal success. The school’s Student Success Program, which includes social and emotional learning, family support, remediation programs and college and career counseling, helps students build confidence and independence as they prepare for life after high school.

ISMI offers an engaging curriculum, and provides students with a personalized learning experience. Michigan-licensed teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes. To keep students on track towards graduation, ISMI deploys a Family Academic Support Team (FAST) of licensed social workers and other school personnel. FAST offers integrated support to families, teachers and students with the goal of improving academic outcomes. Along with community partners, FAST aims to prevent and eliminate the barriers that can leave students vulnerable to falling behind, before such needs arise.

Throughout the year, ISMI builds a sense of community through in-person field trips, community service opportunities and social outings. Graduating seniors are celebrated at an in-person commencement ceremony each spring, and alumni have gone on to enroll in two- and four-year colleges and universities, join the Armed Forces and enter in-demand careers.

ISMI is still accepting enrollment applications for the 2018-2019 school year. Families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school.
