Great Lakes Virtual Academy (MGLVA), a tuition-free online public
school for students in Michigan, will honor its graduates during a 2014
ceremony taking place this Saturday, June 14th at 2 p.m. at
the Crown Plaza Hotel in Lansing. Approximately 7 students will walk
across the stage to receive their diplomas and make history as MGLVA's
first graduating class.
"We're extremely proud to celebrate our first graduating class, a
talented group of diverse young scholars," said Kendall Schroeder, Head
of Scool for Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy. "Our MGLVA
community, full of students and caring parents and teachers, shares a
common drive and determination for success. During the graduation
ceremony we recognize not only the achievements of our students and
faculty, but also the encouragement and support of their families, who
directly contributed to crafting such an impressive program. By
beginning a new adventure at this stage in their education, and finding
success, these students have proven that anything is possible!"
Schroeder is the ceremony's keynote speaker. Schroeder is passionate
about using the virtual environment to provide students and their
families with a well-rounded, personalized education that is not
possible in a traditional brick-and-mortar setting.
MGLVA, an online public school authorized by Manistee Area Public
Schools, is open to students statewide in grades K-12. To help raise
awareness of the program, MGLVA hosts a variety of free events in
communities across the state, as well as online information sessions. At
