Virtual learning is an alternative to the traditional, face-to-face learning experience. Certified teachers meet online with students to teach lessons, lead discussions and provide personalized learning support. Full and part-time virtual learning programs are available to all eligible students. In addition, virtual learning days can be implemented for all students as an alternative to snow days.
Students enrolled in a virtual program learn through a combination of live instruction and independent coursework. Successful students demonstrate motivation to learn, effective time management and self-advocacy skills, readiness for independent learning and technology proficiency.
The enrollment process varies depending on your virtual program choice and the number of courses the student will enroll in. Please read this section in its entirety for details regarding each enrollment process, and contact your school counselor if you have any questions about virtual enrollment.

Additional Virtual Learning Opportunities
The Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) offers K-12 students equal access to a wide range of high-quality courses and interactive online learning that is neither time nor place dependent. Because virtual instruction can be an effective education option for some students, there may be courses available either through a district-provided virtual option or through MOCAP.
Lindbergh Schools partners with Launch to provide high-quality virtual courses to students in grades 6-12. Students in grades 6-12 can sign up for one class or a complete online schedule. Live and asynchronous course opportunities allow secondary learners to choose what best meets their individual schedules and learning needs.
