Free Michigan Virtual Elementary School
Young minds require a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to support future learning. Our free online Michigan elementary school program helps young students in grades K–5 learn the basics of the subjects they study, acquire study skills, and develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Michigan Connections Academy’s online elementary curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals and strives to lay a strong foundation in the core subjects: reading, writing, science, math, and social studies.
The Gifted and Talented Program
Beginning in the third grade, qualifying online elementary school students become eligible for enrollment in the gifted and talented program. In some cases, advanced younger students may have the opportunity to enroll in these courses or work at a higher grade level.
“Best of Class” Materials
Our Michigan virtual elementary school curriculum brings together “best of class” materials from leading content providers and educational publishers. We provide everything you need for a high-quality learning experience at home, including the necessary texts, lesson plans, and materials. Most of our online elementary school curriculum content for the younger grades is distributed in print and supplemented with online content. More of the content is delivered online as students progress through the grades, still supported by printed materials.

Virtual Course Electives and Activities
Michigan Connections Academy understands the importance of offering elementary school course electives and activities in order to give young students a well-rounded educational experience. Electives cover a wide range of topics from learning another language, to mastering the skills of daily living, to appreciating the arts. Electives assist students by cultivating and developing a love of learning. Many activities and clubs at our virtual elementary school in Michigan assist with this same goal, while also providing opportunities for students to learn by doing.
