About iCademy Global
iCademy Global is a tuition free, K-12, virtual school headquartered in West Michigan. At iCademy Global we share a common goal with parents—to ensure that students become productive, successful, and confident adults. We help students develop pathways to that success by building on their individual strengths and interests in an online setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community. We offer a flexible learning environment and can accommodate your family’s unique schedule.
We know that a great education doesn’t have to take place in a classroom. It’s about personalized attention between teachers and students, parents and teachers, and students and their peers. And when students, families, and staff work together as a community, students have access to all the tools they need to reach their goals.
We offer Live classes, Virtual Offices, Synergy Sessions, Onsite learning options, Community Passport programs, virtual clubs as well as Tutoring Sessions so that your child gets face-to-face contact with real teachers, in real time as well as the opportunity to connect with their classmates and friends.
Let us welcome you to the personalized online school community that fosters real achievement for each and every student.
At iCademy Global hundreds of personal success stories from iCademy graduates and parents prove that this form of virtual schooling provides a quality education for students of all ages.
We provide excellent, rigorous education, but that is only part of the story. Online school results are also measured by not only academic achievement, but by how students, and their families, thrive in an environment that promotes personal growth and satisfaction.
Making an impact at home and abroad is something that is at the heart of iCademy.
How do we have an impact? It’s simple: we put our focus on others. We put our focus on others. iCademy students invest in those around them to learn, to serve and to grow. Whether in academics, field experiences, stewardship or multi-age learning, the power of positive impact is all around iCademy.

Why listen to us? Only a parent knows the difference iCademy Global makes in a child’s life, so we make it easy for you to communicate directly with experienced iCademy parents.
I loved that I was in charge of my child’s learning.
icademy Global is a great school, especially if you want to home school yet still want that “teacher” learning and social time with other students. You’re not on your own. They provide you for FREE – the curriculum, computer, teachers, books, and answer questions you may have.
I loved that I was in charge of my child’s learning and knew exactly what she was learning. The teachers are there for you anytime you need it, and are more than happy to help with anything your student needs help with or questions you may have, which was a huge plus for me.
It may seem confusing at first. Don’t worry, it was for me too, but after a couple days of getting to know the curriculum, you will be a pro and know what to do. Even if you still don’t get it, just ask her learning coach, or teacher, and she will sit down and help you.
It’s very flexible to your schedule too, it’s your time that works for you to do school. We were in Florida for a month but could still do her school because it’s our schedule, and it’s online learning with workbooks too. I highly recommend it to those looking to homeschool yet still want help, flexibility, and social time when they go on campus for a day. Great school.
“The schedule is VERY flexible for those of us who travel a lot.
Excellent choice if you want free, Michigan-accredited, not-for-profit, online learning. I can’t speak to the quality of the Homestead Campus experience or the blended online/campus experience (but I’ve heard good things).
The 100% online experience has been largely exemplary. Like with any secondary educational institution, parents need to be involved to make sure communication is good and progress is satisfactory. We’ve found that our student and we as parents enjoy excellent communication with her teachers and mentor via email and Skype. Our daughter gets personalized, one-on-one, tutoring whenever requested. The schedule is VERY flexible for those of us who travel a lot.
The quirky issues regarding % of progress (caused by K12 materials and mentioned by a previous reviewer) are no longer a problem, because the teachers have instituted a clear pacing-system. All of this plus free use of a laptop and the campus to boot!
Great school and staff is the best!
Always looking at ways to improve for our kids. Great combo of online learning and core classes on campus.
My son is thriving this year.
My son has struggled with a learning disability for his whole school career. We had him at a charter school, where he struggled with school because his disability was hard for teachers to teach to. After having him struggle and begin to hate school and have fights doing homework every night and reteaching what he was supposed to learn during the day, we had to make a change.
We had researched K12 schools and we found iCademy Global was near us. We really had to research it because it is a huge commitment to the parents as well as the student. My son is thriving this year. He is learning so much and he is able and willing to discuss his learning. We can relate it to real life, since my husband and I are there helping him to do his work and do his best. He has never had grades like this before.
The teachers and mentor are always available if there are questions and they are really good about getting back to you and answering questions. What worked for us, is working at our own pace, while having due dates. If he is struggling on a topic, I can spend more time to help teach him in a way that he can understand. The teachers are encouraging as well as engaging and knowing the students.
What we really like too is the fact that you can learn at any time of day. If you want to spend the day out enjoying the weather, you can. Just change it to do your work later in the day. As long as it gets done, you are free to work as you please.
We are so glad that we made this decision as a family. There is much more time to enjoy our family time and a lot less of him being upset after school. Best decision we have made.
“I didn’t know learning could be so fun!”
We switched our daughter to iCademy last semester after she missed several weeks of school due to a chronic health condition. Being able to learn online and not get behind with her schooling, has been a godsend.
For our situation, the traditional school setting wasn’t an ideal fit. While initially uncertain about this decision, my fears were quickly put to rest. To my surprise, our daughter has become a more effective communicator, more independent, and more joyful about learning.
In fact, shortly after switching to iCademy, she said, “I didn’t know learning could be so fun!”
