About Our School

Letter from our Online School Principal

Dear Parents,

Minnesota Virtual Academy (MNVA) is a public school using an innovative educational model to provide your child with the best education possible. As a school within the Houston Public School system, our mission statement is to “discover, develop, and achieve the potential within all learners.” Fundamental to this mission is the recognition that children thrive in learning environments that are best suited to their individual learning styles. Our unique educational approach allows us to tailor an education that is specific to each learner.

Minnesota Virtual Academy uses the K12 curriculum, which has been developed by leaders in education. This rigorous, content-rich curriculum provides a strong educational foundation. Students demonstrate their knowledge and skills through state standardized tests.

By enrolling in the Minnesota Virtual Academy, you are partnering with a team of knowledgeable and experienced educators. Minnesota-licensed teachers work with you in monitoring student progress, attendance, and content mastery while providing professional insight, instruction, and support. Our administrative staff is committed to the success of every child in the program.

We are proud of the school’s achievements and our outstanding parent, community, and faculty support system. From winners of national scholarships to geography bee finalists, Minnesota Virtual Academy students continue to excel in all areas of academic achievement. Not only are we proud of our school, but we also believe it is a profoundly good choice for families who are interested in getting actively involved in their children’s education.

At the Minnesota Virtual Academy, we know that choosing the right educational setting for your child is not a decision to be taken lightly. We encourage you to learn more about our program and how it may benefit your child. Our dedicated staff is here to assist you as you go through this exciting endeavor. On behalf of all of us here at MNVA, we hope to welcome you soon to the Minnesota Virtual Academy community.
