Virtual schools enable students to take classes part-time or pursue a full-time K-12 educational program online. They can be public or private and are available to students in many different educational 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 virtual private programs are accessible to students in Mississippi.
