2. Submit an Application

To submit an application, you'll provide us with basic information about your student and choose an available school.

3. Complete the Admissions Process

To complete the admissions process, you'll provide more detailed information about your student, submit necessary documentation and fulfill any additional requirements related to your student's enrollment.

MNVA has some specific requirements that are important for you to note before you get started:

The Minnesota Department of Education Open Enrollment and/or Non-Resident Agreement forms will need to be completed as part of the Admissions process to ensure your student is approved for enrollment. Non-Resident Agreement Forms are required by some, but not all, Minnesota school districts. See the complete list of school districts that do not require Non-Residential Agreement forms as a condition of enrollment.

Documents to submit? Email them to

4. Complete Any Next Steps

All prospective families will participate in a pre-approval telephone conference with an Enrollment Consultant. You may also have additional pre-approval actions depending on your student's individual situation. If this applies to you, you will be notified and instructed on how to complete them.

5. Receive Official Approval

Upon successful completion of the enrollment process, your student will be approved. Please check your email for important information regarding your student's approval and how to access the Online School. Students who are awaiting final approval must plan for a temporary method of education until they officially begin school with us. This may include enrollment in their resident district or a home-based option.

Thank you for your interest in Minnesota Virtual Academy! We look forward to you and your family joining our school community soon.
