Montgomery Virtual Academy Application Information

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is already planning for the start of the upcoming school year 2023 – 2024, including the Montgomery Virtual Academy (MVA). The MVA is part of the continuum of digital learning opportunities offered to students and part of the choice programs in MCPS.

The primary focus of the MVA is to foster a safe, inclusive online learning environment that meets the individual needs of all students in an academic setting where staff know their students' interests, and want to see them excel as learners. The program includes the following highlights: 

  • Traditional general education course offerings
  • Accelerated and honors courses
  • Clubs and extracurricular activities
  • Engagement, support, quality content, and live instructional experiences where students can take advantage of expanded learning opportunities and experiences

Additionally, the MVA provides a unique opportunity for working high school students, those pursuing other out of school options, and those who want to take accelerated and advanced courses that may not be available in their home school.

Like all other choice programs, students will apply through ParentVue for a fixed number of seats in MVA. The open application period will begin on January 5, 2023 and run through February 2, 2023.   Please access the MVA Application Link to apply.
