What MCVA Provides:
Highly-Qualified Instructors - Michigan City Virtual Academy provides highly-qualified instructors utilizing Edmentum/Plato Courseware and Assessments. Students have one-on-one as well as group engagement.
Support Services - Student support is vital to positive academic outcomes, especially for online students. Parents and students alike will have ready access to the professional team of educators by phone, email, and online conferences. Parents/guardians are encouraged to work in concert with professional staff when creating their student’s Individual Learning Outcome Plan. Our focus is on success, “no-fail” options. Students work toward personal achievement and proficiency.
Socialization Opportunities - For online students, social opportunities are as important as the academic experience. Every effort will be made to provide special opportunities for experiences beyond the computer screen. Parents should contact their student’s teacher/mentor for information about socialization opportunities available, including activities offered (e.g., field trips, clubs) and how online instruction can support socialization (e.g., group projects, online collaboration).
College and Career Readiness - Our #1 goal is to prepare students for success in college and careers. Every student will be required to not only fulfill college and career coursework, but students in grades 10-12 will have the opportunity to participate in one of the many outstanding CTE programs through LaPorte County Career and Technical Education program located at the A.K. Smith Career Center. Students also will have access to counselors who will help them with college and career planning.
