Online Summer Courses

Online courses are available for students looking to advance through the high school curriculum (through Michigan Virtual School), or needing to recover course credit (through Edgenuity). Before enrolling, please check with your school counselor to determine the appropriate course selection. All final exams associated with online courses must be proctored by a FHPS staff member in the summer learning lab. Each semester of a year-long online class is equivalent to one high school course. When enrolling, please use your FHPS student email address to receive the link to your online course. Please be aware that it may take up to 48 hours before your online course link is activated and sent to you via email.

Online Courses Through Michigan Virtual School

For the student who is taking a course for the first time in order to advance.  Content and instruction are delivered by Michigan certified, highly-qualified teachers in a virtual learning format. Optional support is offered in person by FHPS teachers Kristy Butler and David Fouch. In order for the course to be placed on the FHPS transcript, all final exams must be proctored by a FHPS staff member in the summer learning lab at Northern High School.

Prior to enrollment, the student should check with their school counselor to determine the appropriate course selection.

To enroll, have the desired course title and semester (either suggested by the school counselor or obtained by perusing the MVS site's class list) at hand.

In the registration notes field, list what class and semester the student would like to take. Then, proceed to the payment screen. Once payment is made, the student's registration is completed.

As an option, students may register for a Michigan virtual class by enrolling directly on the MVS website (without enrolling through FHPS Community Services). If the student wants to have the course credit transferred to FHPS, the student's final exam must be proctored by a FHPS staff member in the summer learning lab at Northern High School.

• When registering for online courses through this website, please make sure that you are selecting the registration link above that matches your current high school.

 

• When entering course titles into the box on the registration form, please type in the exact course title as shown on our credit advancement course list, or the exact course title as received from your school counselor.
