BELDING — High school students have more options today than just attending classes in a brick and mortar building.

Advances in technology and easier access to the internet have given students the chance to learn at their own pace. Virtual learning programs not only help students learn in new and innovative ways, but they also give students at risk of not graduating high school a chance to succeed by using a different approach.

Success Virtual Learning Centers (VLC) have partnered with districts across Michigan for the purpose of bringing online learning programs to at-risk students.
