MVCA combines online instruction, rigorous curriculum and the support of Michigan-licensed teachers to provide a personalized experience for each student.
“With online school, you come to class without any distractions,” says high school student Aaeshah Siddiqui of Rochester Hills. “MVCA classes really challenge me to work hard, and I have gained confidence with the support of my amazing teachers.”
Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music.

Through the school's partnership with the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP), students in grade 3 through 12 can also enroll in a variety of in-person science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workshops.

In addition to online sessions, teachers regularly communicate with students and families via email and phone. Students also have access to resources such as books, workbooks and materials for offline projects and study. To foster a sense of school community outside of the virtual classroom, MVCA offers student clubs, in-person field trips and social gatherings, including an in-person graduation ceremony each spring.
