What a great time at the High School Spring Dance at Ohio Virtual Academy! Seeing nearly 300 of the students laughing, dancing, and interacting with one another was a great example of how the OHVA model supports students and families.

Over 60 students from across the state attended the event. Media coverage captured the magic of the evening.

MVCA Social Studies Department Visits Holocaust Memorial

On April 13th the Michigan Virtual Charter Academy Social Studies Department took a field trip to the Holocaust Memorial in Farmington Hills, MI with over 130 guests (students and family members). They enjoyed a personal tour with docents, which lasted just over an hour, through the museum. The visit ended with a Holocaust Survivor (Mr. Gerry Manko) sharing his experience and struggles with the entire group. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and every person in the room was emotionally touched by his story and words of wisdom. It was such a great success, and they hope to make it an annual event open to all MVCA families.
