Sponsored by Businesswire

Maine Virtual Academy (MEVA), a statewide online public charter school, invites parents to imagine what their children could do with the right education, as students and teachers get ready to log on and start the 2019-2020 school year on August 26.

Delivered entirely online, MEVA offers a personalized approach to learning, delivering rich, engaging curriculum designed to assist students who seek alternative pathways to education.

Students receive the support and resources needed to reach their academic goals, and access programs and courses which allows MEVA students to learn in an environment that meets their unique needs and best fits their lifestyle.

Virtual classes are taught by Maine-certified teachers who communicate with students and families via phone, chat, and email. And MEVA also offers student clubs, field trips, social outings, and other activities to foster a sense of school community, including an in-person graduation ceremony in the spring.

“Online learning provides Maine students with a great educational balance, and allows them to grow to their fullest potential,” said Dr. Melinda Browne, head of school for MEVA. “By combining our innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum, MEVA provides each student with a personalized learning experience they need to succeed.”

Students who choose online school are often pursuing advanced learning, seeking a highly supportive learning environment, and/or need the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical considerations. And MEVA’s dedicated faculty work tirelessly to encourage their students.

“I’ve taught in Maine schools for 11 years, and I’m really excited to help our students who need it the most,” said Mr. Michael Susi, Academic Advisor, for MEVA. “For some of these students, we provide hope. We want them to succeed, to graduate, and we’ll do everything in our power to make that happen.”

MEVA is still accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Families are encouraged to attend an in-person or online information session hosted by the school. For more information on how to enroll, and for a schedule of upcoming events, visit
