Hamilton Virtual School & Homeschool Partnership

We will be accepting students for the Spring 19 semester with a start date of January 14th.

At Hamilton Community Schools, we are proud of the work that we do with each and every learner that we get an opportunity to serve.  We continue to grow our educational options so that learning is personalized for each student. 

Hamilton Virtual School meets the needs of all students by offering a complete online curriculum for the full time virtual school students.  Part time virtual school students may take any non-essential course offered to the full time students.  Non-essential courses, sometimes called “electives” are available to all students, whether they are a full time virtual student, a homeschooler, a traditional public HCS student, or a non-public student accessing our programming through a shared-time arrangement with their nonpublic school. Courses such as Musical Theater, PE, Spanish, and Art are just some of the opportunities that all students enrolled at HCS have available to them.  Follow the links below for a complete list of available classes

Hamilton Virtual School part time students (homeschooled)

The Hamilton Virtual School offers many classes for children from grades K-12.  The classes are all taught by certified teachers.  While all classes may be taken online, many students enjoy the camaraderie and additional experiences provided by the optional classes held at the Hamilton Middle School and Hamilton High School  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 11:15-4:15.  

This program helps individualize learning for home school and blended instruction students living in the Ottawa Area ISD (Intermediate School District,) a contiguous ISD, or in Allegan County  (Kent County ISD, Allegan Area Educational Service Agency, or Muskegon Area ISD)  You can look up your ISD by following this link.
