Each of our recent graduates has their own unique story on how online learning has allowed them to succeed while preparing them for the future

As online learning continues to grow in popularity among parents seeking an education alternative that meets their child’s individual needs, families from across Michigan gathered together this past weekend at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center to celebrate the graduation of their children from Great Lakes Cyber Academy, a tuition-free, public online school serving students in grades 6-12.
Many of the recent graduates enrolled at Great Lakes Cyber Academy to capitalize on the school’s commitment to personalized learning, and to take advantage of its flexible schedule options. Because of this flexibility, students, such as Ivan Mokhav, can chase their personal dreams while receiving a high-quality education. Since the age of five, Mokhav has dreamt of skating competitively. After switching to Great Lakes Cyber Academy, he was able to spend the time he needed to practice and compete in six U.S. Figure Skating Championships while never falling behind on his classwork.
“Each of our recent graduates has their own unique story on how online learning has allowed them to succeed while preparing them for the future,” said Heather Ballien, principal of Great Lakes Cyber Academy. “As our students attend college or enter the workforce, in addition to having received first-class instruction from some of the brightest minds in Michigan, they have benefited from learning critical skills, such as time and project management, that will be essential to their future success.”
