The Washtenaw Alliance for Virtual Education (WAVE) is a free, public high school program for students in Washtenaw County school districts. The program offers a flexible, student-centered, project-based approach to learning for students who need an alternative to the traditional high school model. Support is provided through an advisory teacher and online content support teachers. Staff work together to design and administer an academic program that meets the state standards and prepares each student for further education and career skills. WAVE is available as part of local Washtenaw public school districts' participation in the Washtenaw Educational Options Consortium. WAVE is one of the anchor programs designed for students seeking a non-traditional high school education experience, through their home school district. Mission: The mission of WAVE is to inspire students of all backgrounds and experiences to achieve academic and personal success through their own unique paths. We support holistic student development, both personal and academic. Staff and students work collaboratively to nurture the skills of self-advocacy, respect for other cultures, and pride in themselves. Our ultimate goals are to give students opportunities to become productive citizens in their communities and empower them with skills and resiliency needed to embrace life.
