ACADEMICSAt FlexTech, we pride ourselves on offering a variety of learning experiences for students, all of which lead to meeting the standards of the Michigan Merit Curriculum. We are committed to breaking down the walls that make school seem like a place that students don’t belong or can’t succeed. We transform it into a place where students are always engaged and can find academic, personal and social success in high school and beyond.
FlexTech students learn and meet the requirements of the Michigan Merit Curriculum through a variety of experiences, including:
Self-paced online classes

Through these investigations students integrate knowledge and skills from a variety of disciplines, they consult with community experts, and they present their solutions to authentic audiences.
