Big Rapids Virtual School

Points of Pride


  • Courses Completed – 505, Active Enrollment – 108, Total Students Served – 153

  • 505 Classes Passed: BRVS students set a new record and surpassed 500 total classes passed for the first time in program history (previous record 465 classes.)  Despite the coronavirus shutdown, our students continued to make progress toward graduation.

  • Class of 2020: While BRVS delayed its graduation commencement ceremony in response to the Michigan Executive Order, we will celebrate 21 students who have met the requirements to become alumni of Big Rapids Virtual School.  We are so excited to celebrate them on August 21, 2020 at 7:00pm at the BRHS Auditorium. 

  • Class of 2020 Grad Tour: On May 29, the BRVS staff took to the graduation celebration on the road and visited the homes of some of our Class of 2020 graduates.  Staff members carpooled and set up a “stage” with a podium, backdrop, balloon arch, and graduation props - not to mention a megaphone and some thumping music!

  • Hoodie Bunch: Students who complete four courses in a single trimester earn a BRVS hooded sweatshirt and join the annual Hoodie Bunch!  This year’s bunch includes 22 students!

  • 2020 Senior Cruise:  BRVS would like to formally thank some special community members for organizing an incredible community celebration in light of the coronavirus pandemic and its effect on the normal graduation events.  Thank you Shannon Kelley for making sure our kids felt special and thank you to Loni Sprague of Dezigns with Loni, who sponsored the signs for each of our 2020 BRVS graduates.  The event was sponsored by B103.9 and certainly made our kids feel special despite the unfortunate school shutdowns.
