August 28, 2018

MANISTEE, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 28, 2018--Students and teachers at Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy (MGLVA) will start the 2018-2019 school year on September 4. A full-time online public charter school for students in grades K-12, MGLVA is available tuition-free to students across the state.

MGLVA combines innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by Michigan-certified teachers. Students take a full course load across the core subjects of math, science, language arts, history, music and art, as well as a variety of electives, honors and Advanced Placement® courses at the appropriate grade levels.

Beginning this year, MGLVA high school students will have the opportunity to take online Career Technical Education (CTE) courses through the school’s Destinations Career Program. This program introduces students to specialty trade skills through online courses in the fields of business management and administration, finance, marketing and health science. These engaging, content-rich courses expand the traditional education experience and maximize a student’s ability to succeed in the community and workforce.

“As the new school year gets underway, we’re excited to introduce our students to the Destinations programs,” said Kendall Schroeder, MGLVA head of school. “We have long been a trusted public education partner to Michigan families, and the addition of these online CTE courses will be another way we are preparing our students for college and in-demand career opportunities.”

From live classes to one-on-one instruction to chat sessions, phone calls and in-person events, MGLVA’s dedicated teachers work in close partnership with families and students to support academic success. The online platform enables students to enjoy a safe learning environment and connects them with classmates and teachers from across the state.
