Virtual School combines rigorous academics with a variety of educational programs, learning experiences, instructional approaches, and academic-support strategies addressing the unique needs, interests, aspirations, and backgrounds of our v-students—creating an extraordinary v-schooling experience. v-Students also enjoy the flexibility of Virtual School by choosing when, where, and how they learn. Much like a brick-and-mortar school, Virtual School delivers highly qualified, certified, MNPS teacher-scholars who teach our v-courses. To instruct, skilled educators facilitate learning via the district’s learning management system (LMS) and other innovative instructional technologies.

Part-Time Enrollment Options:

Part-time enrollment options are also available to v-students. To enroll, current MNPS v-students should contact their designated school counselor at the school of primary enrollment. Counselors will share additional information on how to register as a part-time student at MNPS Virtual School. If taking the v-course above and beyond a full v-course load, additional fees apply. Out-of-County v-students may also enroll part-time, on a first-come, first-served basis and upon paying for each half credit taken. For information on how to enroll as a part-time out-of-county v-student, please contact Mrs. Sherry Hill, v-Enrollment Support Specialist, via phone at ((615) 463-0188 ext. 3920 or via email to sherry.hill@mnps.org.

Full-Time Enrollment Option:

MNPS Virtual School offers full-time enrollment opportunities for students in grades five (5) through twelve (12) who meet full-time eligibility requirements. Out-of-County v-students, if meeting those requirements and based upon availability, may also enroll. To begin the enrollment process complete the following form found HERE. General questions regarding full-time enrollment can be directed to Mrs. Adrienne McNew v-Dean of Student Affairs via phone at (615) 463-0188 ext. 3983 or via email to adrienne.mcnew@mnps.org.

Enrollment Options for Exceptional Education v-Students:

Virtual School is committed to providing services to exceptional education v-learners.
