Michigan Connections Academy Celebrates Class of 2020

Graduating from high school is among the most important milestones in our lives, so we wanted to make this event special for the Class of 2020, especially in light of the challenges our students and families have faced surrounding the global pandemic.

More than 100 students from Michigan Connections Academy, a public, tuition-free online school serving students statewide in grades K-12, recently took to the stage – a virtual stage – as part of their graduation celebration.

“Graduating from high school is among the most important milestones in our lives, so we wanted to make this event special for the Class of 2020, especially in light of the challenges our students and families have faced surrounding the global pandemic,” said Michigan Connections Academy superintendent, Bryan Klochack. “We are proud of our seniors—a class full of independent learners and creative problem-solvers who are ready to embark on their next adventure.”
