General and Enrollment FAQs
What grades are offered by Insight School of Michigan?
Insight School of Michigan currently offers grades 6–12.
Is Insight School of Michigan really tuition free?

Does the program provide textbooks and other instructional materials?

How many students will get into the school?
Insight School of Michigan is a public school and therefore open to students statewide who are residents of the state of Michigan. Students who wish to enroll are admitted subject only to capacity (800 for school year 2018–2019) and the grade restrictions listed above.
How does enrollment work?
Enrollment applications are date/time stamped and processed in the order in which the forms are received. If demand exceeds capacity during the specified open enrollment window, a lottery or other impartial selection process will be used to admit and/or place students on a waiting list for admission. The open enrollment period is at least two weeks and includes evening and weekend times. Detailed requirements can be found in MCL 380.553. Insight School of Michigan will not discriminate on the basis of intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, status as a disabled person, or any other basis that would be illegal, if used by a school district.
What if my child is behind on credits or failing classes?
Insight School of Michigan specializes in addressing the needs of struggling students. Our credit recovery and remediation programs help students get back on track. We develop an individualized plan to ensure every student has a roadmap to success that's specific to them.
What are the location and age restrictions?
Students must be residents of the state of Michigan and must be 20 years of age or younger when they enroll. Students who turn 21 while enrolled and need additional education in order to receive a diploma may remain enrolled until they meet the graduation requirements or the end of the school year, whichever occurs first. Students must also be able to demonstrate completion of the eighth grade through official transcript or homeschool portfolios.
Can students enroll and begin classes at any time of the year?
Students can submit an enrollment application anytime during the year and, once approved, start at the next scheduled start date.
