    Supportive Environment

    customized learning options

    flexible online format

    A virtual education that puts the needs of the student first.

    Michigan International Prep School is a forward-thinking, free K-12 online school. We’re driven by a very simple idea: no two students are the same, and the educational pathway should reflect the individual needs of each student. Our dedicated mentors work closely with our students to design a unique learning experience. We even offer a menu of specialized learning Pathways for students who want to earn free college credit, or focus on subjects like music, art, theatre, cybersecurity or military service. We focus on keeping our students engaged through personal connection, customization, and flexibility. 

    "MIPS gave me the opportunity to manage my own time and offered a wide range of options that challenged me."

    The personal element.


    MIPS students are self-directed – but they’re never alone. Our qualified mentors are here to help guide your child from enrollment to graduation. Need to speak with someone in person? Call a mentor, or drop by one of our learning labs to work with a tutor.

    Customized learning

    We want our students to pursue what makes them different. Our mentors work with each MIPS student to design a unique learning pathway that’s structured around the student’s talents, interest, location, and schedule.
