Enrollment is now open for K-12 students and adult learners across the state looking for a personalized approach to learning

As children across the state prepare to head back to school, many students could benefit from the alternative education offered by online tuition-free public schools tailored to their needs, and Highpoint Virtual Academy of Michigan (HVAM), Insight School of Michigan (ISMI), Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy (MGLVA) and Michigan Virtual Charter Academy (MVCA) are ready to welcome them.
