MNPS Virtual School is the first in the world to do this
From the district that brought you Tennessee’s first public virtual school, Metro Schools is excited and proud to introduce the Virtual Academy of Business and Marketing. With this, MNPS Virtual School becomes the first virtual school in the world to adopt the academy model.
“Virtual School continues its tradition of leading the field of online learning,” said Dr. James Witty, Virtual School principal. “At the click of a button, the new academy will provide students with dynamic and unique course options and career exploration opportunities which are embedded in the academy model. Our school has already experienced a spike in enrollment based upon student interest alone and are excited for the full roll out.”
The Academy will take full advantage of the unique perspective that comes from taking classes online by offering classes in virtual enterprise, web design, interactive multimedia and more. Students will interact in a highly personalized small learning community with a focus on college and career readiness, raising aspirations and increasing achievement.
