• Summer 2021 – Michigan Virtual High School Courses Offered at Reduced Cost - Improving a Grade or Taking for the First Time

    May 21st - July 30th

    Enroll Button

    This option is for a student who has or will complete 8th grade before the summer of 2021 and was enrolled in Ann Arbor Public Schools during the 2020-2021 school year and wish to seek new credit, retake classes from a previous term, or take a course(s) to advance their curriculum. This special cost-saving is to encourage our students to engage in learning this summer.

     

    • This option is available to any student enrolled in Ann Arbor Public Schools during the 2020-2021 school year. 
    • AAPS students may choose up to two online classes during the summer term at a special reduced Summer 2021 COVID-19 cost savings of $100 per course.  Michigan Virtual Summer 2021 COVID-19 price is $279 per course for AAPS students, which is regularly $379. 
    • The class(es) taken during the summer term will earn both credit and a grade.  There are no extensions or incompletes during the summer term.  There is a drop period that ends June 14th, 2021, note that withdrawals will not be accepted except in new extenuating circumstances.  Once the drop period has passed, a grade will be earned in the course.  Students need to be committed to learning and not take a course to “try it out”.
    • The Michigan Virtual summer term is 10 weeks long, May 21st - July 30, 2021. We only recommend only one online class during the summer term.   Each online course is considered to average 80-110 hours depending on the student.  We equate that to an average of 15-20 hours per week.  Students taking two courses will be committing to 30-40 hours a week.  There are no extensions or incompletes during the summer term. 

     

    Regular Summer Options for Non-Ann Arbor Public School Students

    • Students who were not enrolled with Ann Arbor Public Schools during the 2020-2021 school year, homeschool students, and students from outside the district may enroll in up to two online classes each summer at a cost of $399 for each Michigan Virtual.
    • A2 Virtual+ will provide a mentor for each enrollment with Michigan Virtual and will provide an Ann Arbor Public School transcript with a grade for the course. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent to ensure that their district will accept the credit.
