Airport Virtual Academy

Airport Virtual Academy (AVA) is available for students in grades 6-12.  All course offerings are supported by highly-qualified, certified teachers.  Interested students may enroll into the lab or beginning 2013-14, may attend courses through our Seat-Time Waiver  (STW) program.

Ava Offers:
- Experienced Staff
- Multiple curriculum options to develop student plans to meet individual needs
- Brick and mortar school
- Blended schedules available
- Enrichment courses
- Opportunities to participate in interscholastic athletic programs, clubs, music and art programs
- Online classes that can be taken anyplace, anytime, anywhere, FREE

Lab/On-Line Offerings
Students who are looking for on-line classes during their traditional school day can create opportunities through the coordination of Mr. Mensing and their school counselor.  AVA has an expansive course offering list that includes general and advanced courses, elective and enrichment courses, and credit recovery opportunities.  

Seat Time Waiver Program
Students interested in taking classes through the STW program are encouraged to contact Jason Mensing at 734-869-7AVA to set up an appointment. After the initial phone/email conversation, parents/guardians and students are required to complete the pre-enrollment forms available on the left, under Enrollment.  Initial meetings will include discussions regarding student's needs and establishing an educational plan that will facilitate maximal growth. A curriculum, a highly-qualified teacher, and a mentor teacher will then be assigned. This will be the beginning of building a strong relationship and offering support to the student’s social and academic needs during their enrollment.  

We look forward to working with you and developing an individual academic plan that works for you.
