students access and experience their curriculum in a blended
setting, both on campus and outside of the “brick and
mortar” school building and outside of traditional school
hours. Certain graduation requirements, such as Physical Education,
music programs, or other exploratory options, are still be provided
onsite and will require the student to attend and participate.
Students enrolled in the Frontiers program continue to be exposed
to curriculum and content presented by highly-qualified instructors
and will be required to complete all of the high school graduation
requirements for the State of Michigan as well as participate
in the MME. Students must be enrolled in six or more courses
and will be considered a full-time high school student. If they
complete an online course early, they may enroll in another
immediately. This also allows for the possibility of early graduation
for motivated individuals.
enrolled in the Frontiers program are able to participate
in all extra curricular activites and sports as long as all
eligibility requirements are maintained.
This program allows students to acquire a high school diploma
without the traditional “seat time” requirements
where a student must be physically present within the building
to gain credit. A portion of a student’s time on-task
may now be spent online.
Participants will also be assigned a “Mentor Teacher”,
staffed by Wyoming High school who is physically present during
the school day. Mentors are certified teachers and are also
available via e-communication. Mentors will assist students
as they progress through their courses successfully and assure
that they are following the individual educational program
that the students have designed for themselves.
