FLEX High School Michigan

Flex High School of Michigan is all about providing personalized learning.

Flex High School of Michigan is a growing network of public charter schools offering a free high school diploma program. Our mission is to provide a personalized learning plan and one-on-one attention in a safe environment so students can focus on learning at a pace that fits their schedule. No two students are alike, and we don’t educate them that way either.

Why are we here? The dropout problem is a serious one, with millions of students dropping out of school each year. Each high-school dropout creates a huge economic and social burden on our society. We recognize the scope of that problem and decided to do something about it.

Our mission is a clear one: recover those students who have dropped out or who are in danger of dropping out. Get them into a resource center. Motivate them. Mentor them. Counsel them. And of course, teach them.

We help guide them to further their education. We show them what the world can be like if they are willing to work for it. We listen to them. We help them reach their goals. And we give them hope. Regardless of the specific path they choose, our goal is to show them the path to becoming productive members of our society.

Flex High School of Michigan admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
