Traditional Public Special State Magnet Charter Private Homeschool Virtual Scholarship Programs


Virtual schools enable students to pursue a part-time or full-time K-12 education program online. They can be public or private and are available to students in many different settings. In particular, students who are homebound, travel often, or need learning flexibility may benefit from virtual options.

  • Supplementary courses through the Mississippi Virtual Public School may be accessible to students through their local school district. Mississippi has no full-time virtual public or charter schools.
  • Virtual schools run by other states, such as Florida, offer classes to out-of-state students, and numerous private virtual programs are accessible to students in Mississippi.
