Utica Community Schools Virtual Academy begins accepting applications April 19

The Utica Community Schools Virtual Academy will begin accepting applications on April 19 for families seeking a virtual learning option featuring the district’s nationally recognized academic programs.

“Our Virtual Academy offers the choice to combine the district’s educational excellence in a virtual environment,” Interim Superintendent Robert Monroe said. “We are proud to now offer the academy as part of the Utica Community Schools portfolio of options that meet our students’ unique needs and interests.”

Families interested in the program can learn more at a virtual informational night at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 15. Pre-registration is recommended for the event, which will allow parents to receive an overview of the program and participate in a virtual Question and Answer period.

The virtual academy gives families virtual access to K-12 programs offered through the Utica Community Schools, including core elementary and specials and secondary elective and required courses.  Students can participate in extra-curricular activities, including marching band and athletics, through their home schools.

The program is open to UCS families and those wishing to enroll through Schools of Choice who reside in Macomb, St. Clair, Wayne, Lapeer and Oakland counties.

This year, more than 5,000 students were part of the inaugural year of the academy.

“This has been an amazing opportunity for my family,” said parent Meghan Ciacchella, who has two students in the program. “This program is distraction-free, education-focused and it provides students with unique 21st century skills.”

The initial enrollment period for next year’s program will be open from April 19 through May 2.
