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 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. From kindergarten through grade 12, our program will meet your student's unique needs throughout their learning path.

Our smaller class sizes, multiage classes, and strong teacher-student relationships allow for a deeply personalized learning approach that meets your student where they are at and guides them to advance. Your child can dive deeper and take on new challenges or stay on a topic until they feel ready to move forward. Real-world project based learning with a social-change focus lets students pursue their passions, develop their talents, and reach their full potential. 

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

New for 2023-24, VirtualEDU is the first (and only) fully-accredited public school in the state of Minnesota to offer blended learning — a combination 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. Our blended learning option is available within the VirtualEDU K-12 school, allowing your child to stay connected to one school community. 

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.
