Michigan Virtual Charter Academy is a excellent school. The courses is very educational and the teachers and staff are very educational,professional and show great concern for their student and for their job title. The teachers have great skills and they act and talk with respect and they act like teachers suppoose to act and teach like teachers suppose to teach. I would recommend this school to a parent for their child you will be very happy.
Great school! My son is a sophomore, things are moving alone well! Teachers communicate great!
This place is so unorganized I can't even begin to explain. Save your time and go somewhere else. I think all these post are fake when I shows positive.
Disorganized, pushy, too large of a school...would be the words to describe Michigan Virtual Charter Academy (k-12). I was in the process of beginning enrollment for Michigan Virtual Charter Academy and Michigan Connections Academy because I didn't know who would have space for the following school year due to previous enrollment caps. I completed all paper work for both schools and waited...I was NEVER contacted by k-12 until I saw 2 huge boxes on my front porch containing school books for the following school year! Seriously...they never contacted me saying we had been given a spot and when I tried to call and say we were not interested any longer nobody knew what to do. It took several people and a day and a half to finally figure out who I should really speak with. Talk about disorganization!! After much research and speaking with other parents in the area, we chose Michigan Connections Academy and could not be happier. They are always tremendously helpful and with one phone call my questions/concerns are addressed. So please please research Michigan Connections Academy and see the difference for yourself.
My school has helped me a lot, when summer break came I was assigned to do national math lab for 9 weeks, this is my 8th week in NML and I'm so glad my teacher put me in this class because the first few weeks I wasn't happy because it was right in the middle of the day but NML has helped me ALOT, but MVCA has helped me reach my goals!
I have never heard of this school, that is, until approximately three days ago. I just bought a new cell phone AND a new phone no. I have NOT given it out to ANYONE yet as I decided to do wrk only on the internet on this ph as opposed to passing it out to friends. Anyway, some EXTREMELY pushy lady (sounds like a younger, white lady), from MICHIGAN VIRTUAL CHARTER ACADEMY IN Grand Rapids insist on calling me every, single day about enrollment for my child. I asked her how did she get my no. & to please remove me from her calling list and she only got LOUDER & LOUDER & continues on w/her speech!! Is she serious? She literally won't stop talking over me until both of us are almost yelling @ one another. Does herself and Miss Becky in arts & crafts find these "teachers lounge shenanigans" amusing? Well I DON'T!!!! She called me again today with the same BIT!! If this school hires people like this, who are in positions of authority to wrk for them, I DONT FEEL AS IF THEY SHLD BE TEACHING ANYONES CHILD!! I mean gheese... they must get paid per phone call!
This will be my daughters first year with K-12 so far everyone has been so wonderful my daughter can't wait to get started.
My daughter just completed the 1st grade with the K-12 (MVCA) online charter academy. My wife and I researched and tried a number of schools ranging from public, charter, Montessori, private and legacy home schooling programs and found all these options to be lacking in some way or another. We knew that the K-12 program was the perfect solution at this stage and even after our in depth research we were pleasantly surprised by the extreme level of excellence by everyone involved in the program. (Teachers to administration) My daughter thrived in this program and was eager to learn more and more. It was a parents dream come true, not to mention all the upsides of home schooling through an online academy. I travel the world in my profession and this allowed me to bring my family with me on some of these trips; which would not have been an option with a traditional school. We highly recommend this program for any and all parents/students. This should be your first and only choice for the education of your children. The level of attention, performance and results are so much greater than all the other options for education. Bravo Mrs. S and everyone at K-12 (MVCA).
MVCA allows my child with food allergies to have a normal school environment in the safety of her own home.
MVCA is just what my family needed, the teachers work with my children at their speed of learning. Wow, there is no bullying, my children do not suffer from any of the illnesses they had when they were learning in a brick and mortar environment. MVCA has provided my family with an awesome alternative to learning. And due to the fact that everything has gone techno, we feel that we are keeping up with the times, being a virtual family.
this school is a very excellent opportunity for anyone who is able to stay home with their children in some areas the schooling system is failing the online schools ensure that your children will receive the education needed to succeed in life regardless of the failing economy or the community that they currently reside in. we also no longer have to deal with bullying or being harassed by grownups on the way to school in the morning plus my family are night owls and i love the convenience of being able to sleep in in the mornings as well. Also being a single parent mvca helps trumendously with having my children all in the same school under one roof. If you can join a virtual school please do so the benefits of it is amazing.
This was our first year & we couldn't be happier. I loved that I could still take my son to all of his medical & specialist appointments & not having to miss out on any school work or attendance. My family will be continuing this school with all 3 of our children....it is really that great!
very nice set up, materials provided are easy to use. Easy to adapt to students pace. Fast pace students can move up grade levels in individual subjects as fast as they are comfortable.
Experienced, responsive and compassionate teachers who go the extra mile to match my children's abilities with the schoolwork. My kids are no longer bored! We have been here for K-3, starting the 3rd child this fall. Great online lesson supplementation, son especially liked the phonics and math games, daughter likes the study island lesson animations and History audio books. The Language Arts and History sections in particular seem to take the best of the different homeschool methods that I've looked at, giving you the option of approaching the curriculum from whichever side you prefer. The provide lots of options within each lesson for you to choose, depending if your child needs a more kinesthetic or auditory or visual approach for that subject. I like the online schedule that I can rearrange as needed and easily track progress and project end dates.
This school is a great school because it is so flexible and the teachers are really great.
Michigan Virtual Charter Academy has been a great experience for our family. We love the study program, classes, the flexibility the school has, and the curriculum. We have been with MVCA going on 3 years now and would not change a thing. Our kids and excel to there full potential. There is a lot of interaction with the teachers and the staff is always ready to answer any question you may have. We do wish there were more field trip type things once a month would be nice so we could have more interaction with their friends in their classes. We are looking forward to next year:)
This school is very time consuming and unless you love for your child to be glued to a computer all day, typing a 4 paragraph essay, watching videos about stuff they are interested in, or reading an online math, literature, history or science lessons, and so on -it will not be for you. I have been using this program for three years now and I like that it is FREE. I also like that so far there are physical books,Student Guides and Teacher Guides. If you need help understanding something they have tons of resources-not to mention you have the internet and your child right there. The teachers are helpful if you take the initiative and get into the computer too. My school could improve by providing better and multiple ways of teaching online and with books. Once a student gets interested in something he must quickly change gears to start another subject. There should be lessons that cover multiple core material.-the only ones remotely so only involve history and art. MVCA seems like they realize online learning for middle school is a growing and changing phenomenon.
I would never take my son out of this school it is the best part of my day watching him learns so many things and knowing I am a part of it MVCA has the best teachers we have been doing it for 2 years and every teacher I have delt with goes beyond what she needs to answere all my questions and his LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.
well so far the school is allsome i havent been with the school very long but hope the rest of my experice is good to .
You could not find a better school for your child. I have children with special needs, the special education department at MVCA is phenominal. I would recommend this school hands down. The teachers and administrators are great, they are in contact with the students and parents regularly. The kids attend live online sessions several times per week with other students and teachers. The lessons are comprehensive and the curriculum is a very high quality. This was my first time homeschooling and I absolutely love it!
