• Welcome students & families!

    Below you will find answers to your questions about enrollment and eligibility requirements, along with all the dates and forms you need.

    MVS Enrollment & Eligibility

    Memphis Virtual School is not an only learning “option,” but an actual public school within the Memphis-Shelby County Schools district. Available to students throughout the state of Tennessee, students may enroll full-time and even graduate from our school. Additionally, learners can attend on a part-time basis taking between one (1) and four (4) courses. Full-time students may enroll using the MSCS general enrollment protocols (include link). Part-time students complete enrollment information at the school of primary enrollment via their designated school counselor.

    Before enrolling on a full-time basis, students and parents should consider whether online learning best serves the learner's educational needs. Virtual School is modeled after the collegiate style of online learning and delivered primarily in an asynchronous format, which means that students learn independently, with limited live interaction with an instructor. Courses are constructed around modules and lessons allowing students to work independently and advance at their own pace with the support and help of a highly qualified, certified teacher. Teachers are assigned to each class but are only available for academic support during evening virtual office hours.
