New virtual high school launches in Michigan

MUSKEGON, MI -- A new online and non-traditional high school will give students in Muskegon County a different way to receive their diploma.

Success Virtual Learning Center, a cyber charter school, opened at 950 Norton Ave. mid-January and it has about 50 students. The school is sponsored by Berrien Springs Public Schools.

Students in ninth grade up to 22-years-old are eligible to attend. The center focuses on helping students receive a high school diploma who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out.

Todd Smith, the Muskegon Center director, said the need for a center in the Muskegon area was recognized. It becomes one of 14 in the state that serve more than 1,300 students.
