A free, K-12 online 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, real estate or military service. We focus on keeping our students engaged through personal connection, customization, and flexibility.
