Buchanan Virtual Academy offers full-time online opportunities for students in grades 6-12. Coursework is done from home and the curriculum is available 24/7 with certified teachers available six days a week. The engaging curriculum offers flexibility and covers all Michigan requirements. Students may accelerate at their own individual pace.
Buchanan Virtual Academy is proud to have graduated eight students in our first year! High School courses meet the Michigan Merit Curriculum requirements and 18 credits are required for graduation. Students enrolling with previous high school credits will have their credits examined and credited in the Michigan Merit requirements where possible.
Buchanan Virtual Academy focuses on student mastery of content and all courses are attached to Michigan certified teachers offering students’ academic assistance along the way. Progress reports are available for parents as well as communication with students by phone, email, instant and text messaging, and video conferencing. If needed, students are provided a computer, scanner, and internet access free of charge.
Students who live in the Buchanan school district are eligible for enrollment as well as all Berrien County students and students in adjacent counties.
Online learning is a fit for many students unable to take classes in a traditional setting. More information about the virtual academy as well as the application process can be found from the Application link above or by clicking here.
