What is Madison Virtual Campus (MVC)?
Madison Virtual Campus (MVC) is a district-wide service that provides flexible online learning opportunities to MMSD students through their school of attendance.
MVC is not a full-time online schooling option and does not offer diplomas. It is a supplementary, in-district program that provides students with opportunities to take online courses while maintaining all of the benefits and resources available in our high schools. Please contact your school's principal for details on accessing full-time virtual learning in fall 2020 and beyond.
MVC is a partner in the Wisconsin eSchool Network, which offers our students the instructional expertise and opportunities for learning from over 16 member and affiliated school districts. Through our partnership, we have access to fully vetted, standards-aligned curriculum from quality content vendors such as FLVS (Florida Virtual School).
Currently, only high school courses are available for online enrollment through MVC. Secondary students with compelling curricula needs (e.g. to keep pace for graduation, to take courses not offered at their high school) consult with their school’s counselor who assists students through a selection and approval process to best meet the student’s particular learning needs. MVC courses are for original credit or credit recovery and are full semester in length. For further MVC information, contact your school counselor, your school's MVC mentor teacher, or the MVC Teacher Leader (Alyson Weier, email@example.com.)
