CMCSS K-12 Virtual

CMCSS K-12 Virtual will be offered as a school of choice for the 2022-2023 school year. The application period for schools and programs of choice begins January 14, 2022. 

K-12 Virtual was designed for students who may not thrive in the traditional school environment but are academically ready to learn in a more self-directed setting. These students should excel at utilizing digital tools and resources to enhance their mastery of grade-level content.

Finding Success 

Successful virtual students are self-motivated, organized, and, with the help of teachers and learning mentors, can take responsibility for their own learning.
