What is Venture Academy?

Venture Academy (VA) is a blended non-traditional self-paced program
serving the needs of a diverse population at Zeeland Public Schools.
Being self paced, students can work faster or slower as needed to
compete the curriculum and are not tie to the pace of the rest of the
class. Students in the program have the option to earn an 18 credit
hour MMC diploma or a 22 credit hour Zeeland Public Schools diploma.

Venture Academy students work on core academic programing at school
three to four hours per day based on student progress and enrollment
in additional programming. These classes are delivered in an
electronic format via Edgenuity software. Concurrently, students
attend classroom, face-to-face instruction, based on the classes they
are completing online. During classroom time, students receive small
group instruction, reteaching opportunities, tutoring, and project
based learning experiences.


Registration will be held at Venture Academy in ZWHS on Tuesday, August 29 from 9 – 3 pm and Wednesday, August 30 from 3 – 7 pm. Yearbook and ID pictures will be taken during registration. All necessary registration forms and links will be included in the August mailing.
