Ferris Authorizes Cyber Charter School

Michigan parents now have a new educational opportunity for their children. Ferris State University is establishing a K-12 cyber charter school with Connections Academy of Baltimore, Md.

The cyber charter school is designed to provide another option for students outside of the traditional classrooms found in charter, private and public schools.

A unique component of the cyber charter school is individualized instruction with lessons tailored to a student’s strengths and weaknesses, along with group instruction. The benefits of an individualized education are live, teacher-led lessons; interactive teacher/student phone consultation; video teachlets; and an in-house learning coach, who is usually a trained parent/guardian or adult family member.

As Ferris celebrates its first 125 years of providing educational opportunities, the words of its founders still ring true as the university begins its second 125-year journey: “Education for all the people, all the time.”
