Testimonials

"My Virtual Academy has been an awesome opportunity for my child. Before enrolling my child in My Virtual Academy my son had a lot of problems academically. I could not figure out what to do because a lot of things I tried just didn't work. Finally, I realized every child doesn't do well sitting in a classroom. We are trying My Virtual Academy on a trial basis, and so far I like it! My son can work at his own paced without being pressured to speed up. My son's teacher call's everyday to check on us. Overall, My Virtual Academy has currently been the answer to my prayers." - Tracey C. - Oak Park Virtual Academy

"You and your staff have done a great job welcoming my son to the school. And promptly addressing any problems or concerns. We appreciate everything you have done. Thank you so much." - LaDonna E. - Harper Woods Virtual Academy

"I would also like to thank you all for the best program that I've come across yet, and I've done my homework. The curriculum is great and so are the teachers. This experience has been a blessing and I now have answers for some of the youth who are just afraid to attend Detroit Public Schools, I know many of them. This is a real issue and MVA is a real answer. I am the poster child/mother for home-schooling when the proper people are in place to make it a learning experience that will definitely prepare them for college and the real world. Easy? NO. Doable? YES is the answer I get from every student I've talked to who takes the program seriously enough. So once again, thank you for your time and effort. MVA is the next best thing to computers and sliced bread." - Kristine M. - Oak Park Virtual Academy

"The past four months in Math have been a breeze thanks to your patience and confidence in me. You never got impatient at my lack of attendance or lateness or forgetting I had assignments left because you knew I'd always eventually, if not immediately, make it up. And I thank you for months of reassurance." - Blake M. - Oak Park Virtual Academy

"I am so thankful to have found the Virtual Academy. Their program helped me accelerate through my senior year classes in order for me to graduate faster. My teachers checked in on me frequently and would always help me when I needed help. I thank them so much for helping me through my classes it was hard at times but ended the semester with all A's!! I had a great time using the program Compass it was interesting learning from videos instead of a normal classroom setting. The programs I used were easy to figure out and navigate. Organization was a problem for me in the program Odyssey Ware. It worked out eventually but the lack of organization made it hard to keep track of what assignments needed to be completed at certain times. All in all, the Virtual Academy system worked really well for me and it helped that I had a lot of motivation to complete my classes to graduate. I am so excited to finally be done with high school and so grateful that this program worked for me." - Claire W. - Cheboygan Virtual Academy

We all want you to know that while we were considering returning Daniel to carter, that idea had no reflection whatsoever on what an amazing teacher you are and how wonderful you have been for Daniel and our whole family for that matter." - Jennifer G. - Oak Park Virtual Academy

"What I liked most about MVA was that it saved my life. I was bullied a lot and had medical problems that kept me away from my old school. The teachers are unbelievably nice and help you get through personal and school troubles. The teachers continually call to make sure you are on track and if you fall behind, they help you figure out why and how they can help you move forward. I had an amazing three years at My Virtual Academy and the curriculum is well explained and taught me a lot more than I ever learned at public school. Nothing bad to say about MVA." - Katelyn B. - Harper Woods Virtual Academy

"Well as of last night I have officially graduated, at 16. I'd like to thank my teachers and the staff at MVA for supporting and helping me more than my home school ever did. As those of you that know me are aware its been a dark couple of years for me... thankfully this year I've seen more light than I thought I would, and I owe a good part of that to you guys. So as I leave this all behind and keep pressing forward, once again I'd just like to thank you all for encouraging me and not giving up on me! ‪#‎ClassOf2016‬ " - Camden R. - Westwood Virtual Academy

"Ms. T is so understanding and helpful with math. Algebra 2 was one of my hardest classes but whenever I had questions she was always there to answer them. Ms. T is one of the nicest teachers and always encouraged me to do my best. She also understood when I couldn't get a lot of work done. She is one of the best teachers I've ever had. " - Elizabeth H. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mrs. K puts up with me when I'm super difficult about geometry. She helped me by trying her hardest to get my grade up and giving me the space I needed to complete the class when it was needed. But she was also there when I needed her and had a lot of patience with me. She's nice and has a lot of patience with me and she makes an amazing teacher. " - Tiara T. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mr. P was very patient with me, but he still gave me the push I needed to finish his class and even helped me figure out a schedule to finish my other classes." - Adrianna D. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mr. P helped me the most since I've been in this program, he's very nice and understanding. He always replied fast to my messages and talked me through everything that I had trouble with. He is by far the best teacher I've had. He was also easy to talk to." - Maklayla R. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mr. T was always willing to understand whatever I may have going on outside of school and worked with me. He didn't pressure me to work when I was having a bad day, just telling me that tomorrow could be a better day. When I was in a rough spot he would tell me about something similar that happened to him so I knew that it gets better. He is an amazingly kind, helpful, and caring person. Probably one of the most caring teachers I have ever met, and I am glad to have had him as my teacher. " - Marley W. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mrs. H has has always helped me out as a teacher and mentor. I can always call with any questions I have and she will always have a answer for me or find out the solution for me. She has a kind and understanding heart, she cares a lot about helping the students. She has always been kind and helpful when talking to my mom they talk like friends. She gives me encouragement when I feel like giving up on a subject." - Amber T. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"My teachers are always helping me and are patient with me with my classes. I want them to know that I appreciate their effort and they give me hope. They give me support and pep talks and help in any way that they can. If I don't finish for me I'll finish for them. Whenever I had a question for them It would never go unanswered . There's help always and they make it easy for me to reach them when I Need them. Just thank you. Thanks for helping me and many other students, Thank you for believing in me, Thank You for being awesome teachers. Just a million thanks 💞 UPDATE: Samantha's teachers are excited to let you know that she is a 2016 GRADUATE!" - Samantha S. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Ms. J is very patient and understanding. I feel that she loves her job and cares a lot about her students. She is smart and goes out of her way to help. I feel comfortable when we work together. She is always willing to help me. She doesn't get excited about my incomplete work, she gives me suggestions on how I my organize myself. She would spend as much time as it takes for me to understand whatever course we were working on. She always made sure I really understood by assigning me things to work on by myself and would call again to check up on me. She has made some recommendations for getting help with my math. I like her as my teacher and would like to have her as my ninth grade teacher if possible. " - Emery B. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mrs. G helped me when I first started in the program with chemistry, a class that I came into unsure of because of my previous teacher at my previous school. She helped with everything I asked, literally she made sure I understood every question and got the best grade I could. She was always super positive and motivating!" - Olivia E. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Mrs. M is special because first of all, she made me feel very welcome from our first day of conversation. I feel very comfortable having her as my teacher. She always answers my phone calls or my online messages. She listens to me and she is always considerate of my feelings and whatever situation I make her aware of. Mrs. M always simplifies my issues in a way that I can understand or at least try to. What I love most is even though I am not all the way caught up in my courses, she lets me know this without being harsh about it. My memory is short term so it takes me awhile to get directly where I need to be. Mrs. M will give me a call occasionally to check on me, make suggestions that will help, and send messages as well. I want to say thank you so much to Mrs. M for being considerate of my disabilities in some of my assignments, because for me, math is not a subject I can comprehend very well." - RyShayla D. - Teacher Appreciation Week!

"Ms. J is always concerned about me and answers any questions I have. She helped by answering all my questions and going step by step with me. Mrs. J is like no teacher I've ever had. She sees potential in me and I thank her for that." - Brianna D. - Teacher Appreciation Week!
