MGLVA has some specific requirements that are important for you to note before you get started:
Virtual Information Session
The parent and/or legal guardian of every student enrolling in our program is strongly encouraged to attend a Virtual Information Session as part of the enrollment process. These sessions are intended to ensure that families fully understand the instructional model and expectations of the student, parents and school, as well as identify each student's individual needs before the first day of school. A complete schedule and how to access these sessions will be provided during the enrollment process.
4. Complete Any Next Steps
All prospective families will participate in a pre-approval telephone conference with an Enrollment Consultant. You may also have additional pre-approval actions depending on your student's individual situation. If this applies to you, you will be notified and instructed on how to complete them.
5. Receive Official Approval
Upon successful completion of the enrollment process, your student will be approved. Please check your email for important information regarding your student's approval and how to access the Online School.
