As families continue to search for the appropriate learning experience for their children, enrollment for the 2014-15 school year is currently underway at Michigan’s leading virtual and blended learning schools – Michigan Connections Academy, Great Lakes Cyber Academy and Nexus Academy’s three campuses ( Grand Rapids, Lansing and Royal Oak) – which offer flexible scheduling and individualized attention with a 21st Century instruction model.
Parents and students interested in learning more about these tuition-free public schools will have opportunities throughout May to participate in a variety of information session meetings. Information sessions provide families with extensive details on the innovative and unique approach to learning afforded to all students attending these high-quality schools featuring Michigan-certified teachers and award-winning curriculum.
“With a husband out of state in the military service, it was important that we provide our children with a learning experience that would allow them to spend more time together at home,” said Janae Rodriguez, whose children attend Michigan Connections Academy and Great Lakes Cyber Academy. “Our children are flourishing academically and personally thanks to the high-level services and flexibility at their virtual schools.”
Space is limited at each school, so early enrollment is encouraged for those families interested in attending one of these virtual or blended learning schools.

“My son is a visual learner who does not learn well in a lecture style setting. The computer based classes allow him to work at his own pace, repeat sections he does not understand or skip ahead on sections he already has mastered,” said Mary Harding a parent of Nexus Academy student. “Having teachers available to help him when he is stuck on a section allows him to get the help he needs when it is needed.”
