Do you know any high school age students that have not been successful in the traditional school model? Westwood Virtual Academy offers an innovative approach to education; we offer a fully online environment with access to one-on-one assistance from state certified teachers and tutors, free of cost. Our school seeks to assist the individual needs of any student: be it the teenage mother; the student with continual health issues; those that have faced severe bullying; the student that wants to graduate early; or any adolescent seeking a supportive, engaging, and successful educational experience that will meet them wherever they currently are in their academic progress.
Our goal is not to judge where students have been, but rather to help them to get where they want to be. Our computer lab offers students the flexibility to get face-to-face help from our staff of Michigan state certified teachers or tutors who work one-on-one with students. We offer a variety of options to best meet the individual needs of any student. Whether a student has just begun high school, they’re seeking to graduate on a fast-track plan, or they simply just need to finish up the last few credit requirements, our program is geared to suit his or her individual needs.
Through our program, students have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma by completing Michigan’s Merit graduation requirement of 18 credits, fully online, compared to many other high schools, which require 22+ credits for graduation. Students at Westwood Virtual Academy are only required to complete core content courses required by the State of Michigan, eliminating the need for earning credit in non-essential classes.
Students can choose a fast-track option, which will allow them to take as many courses as needed in order to earn the desired amount of credit during our 18 week semester at any pace, or they may choose the general course progression, where they take 6 half credit courses a semester—earning 6 credits a year.
Our curriculum is directly aligned with the most current Michigan Merit curriculum standards and the Common Core State Standards for English and Math, along with CCSS Literacy standards for History and Social Studies, as well as NCAA accredited. Our school’s curriculum has been developed with the students’ needs in mind.
We offer MHSAA sports program w/ Robichaud High School, homecoming, and prom.
Please feel free to set up an appointment discuss your student’s individual academic needs and goals with the school’s director. Call (313) 565-0288 for enrollment information!

We encourage you to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities that Westwood Virtual Academy provides for every type of student!
