I've been thriving in VirtualEDU ever since I started in ninth grade. It's better for me academically and mentally and physically.

We have a place for you at K-12 VirtualEDU 

Whether you choose our fully online program or our blended option, learning at VirtualEDU is designed to bring out the best in your child. VirtualEDU students learn at their own pace with supportive teachers who care about them and understand their needs. Our closely connected school community offers strong peer and teacher relationships and our families are encouraged to partner with us. Starting in kindergarten through grade 12, our program will meet your student's unique needs throughout their learning path.

Blended learning (online + in-person) is here!

VirtualEDU is the first (and only) fully-accredited public school in the state of Minnesota to offer blended learning — a blend of in-person and online learning (sometimes known as hybrid learning). Our blended learning model offers enhanced social interaction and in-person school community along with the flexibility that online learning provides. In-person learning takes place at the VirtualEDU school site in the Hopkins East building, 5300 Glenwood Ave., Golden Valley, near Highway 100 and Glenwood Avenue. 

Prepared for life

Our learning approach is research-driven with  teachers who have been trained in forward-thinking practices to prepare our students to succeed in post-secondary training, college, and in life.
