"I liked that everyone cares about my success and I'm not just another number."

I like that I had support through the entire year, whether it be the AP exam situation or I just needed assistance, all of you have supported me along the way. I liked that teachers gave up valuable time, in order to help me through the semesters (whether it be taking time to create a guide for me, or having longer Live Lessons so that we can thoroughly go over the information, or taking time out of their busy day to set-up a One-On-One to go over things that I found confusing). I like the willingness of everyone to engage, whether it be these surveys 🙂 or getting me prepared for the AP Exams. Long story short, I liked that everyone cares about my success and I'm not just another number.

I couldn’t have done it without this school's support and assistance

I transferred to online schooling at Uplift Michigan Academy as a Sophomore, after a terrible experience during my freshman year at my local high school. Within two years of being at Uplift Michigan Academy, I graduated high school (as a junior) with support of my teachers, councilors, and everyone else in the school system. I couldn’t have done it without this school's support and assistance in graduating early. Not to mention I worked full time while partaking in online school and my schedule was flexible enough I could manage both and all of my teachers were very understanding about that.

Thanks to UMA my daughter was able to work, grow and engage in an environment that also nourished her soul.

We were recommended to choose Uplift Michigan Academy by a family friend and staff member (Jon D). We had researched other schools and just not been happy with them. To say our experience has been life-changing is an understatement.

My daughter was dealing with some major social issues and bullying in public school. Girls are just unkind. After three years of watching her self esteem dwindle to almost nothing, witness her coming her EVERYDAY to have a mental breakdown and have her school principal not handle anything, we decided it was time for a drastic change.

I have watched my daughter blossom this year. The teachers and staff have been so kind and understanding. The personal relationship that these kids are allowed to develop with the staff is amazing and so positive. Thanks to UMA my daughter was able to work, grow and engage in an environment that also nourished her soul. Without this year and this incredible experience, my daughter would have been lost in the public school system. I can’t recommend UMA enough.
