What is the W-A-Y Program?

One size does not fit all. Every student has their own unique interests, skills, and ways of learning. The W-A-Y Watervliet Program provides a personalized learning experience for students who struggle with traditional high school. 
W-A-Y Watervliet opened it's virtual doors in the fall of 2011. We expanded the program and are accepting applications now. 
W-A-Y Watervliet is an alternative approach that encourages self-esteem, independence,, and 21st century skills that will facilitate a college education and career path. 
Students in the W-A-Y Program become Researchers and develop customized standards-based learning paths with a Mentor around topics that truly appeal to them. 
Each researcher is equipped with a school owned computer and, if necessary, Internet connectivity within his or her home. They communicate with their Team Leader (Mentors) daily and collaborate with other Michigan and International W-A-Y researchers.
Highly-qualified W-A-Y teachers assess and align all projects according to state content standards, ensuring that each student completes the program with a high school diploma.
