K-12 Virtual School

McKinley Virtual Academy

Exciting changes are happening at the McKinley Academy!


Created in 2007, McKinley Academy was established as an alternative high school for those families seeking a more intimate learning setting.   McKinley relocated to the Stangel Learning Community building in summer of 2019 to welcome additional learners and opportunities for students.  In Fall of 2021, Mckinley will be rebranded as a  K-12 Virtual Charter School featuring elementary, middle and high school opportunities for those looking for an online learning option.  

This new learning option is open to all students with instruction facilitated by MPSD licensed teachers and aligned to state standards.
McKinley also features the following:

- Trimester instead of quarterly grading term schedule
- Students with disabilities and English Learner students will receive specially designed instruction from appropriately certified staff.
- Students may participate in co-curricular activities at our MPSD schools.
- All McKinley students will be provided a Chromebook and, if internet service is needed, will receive a hotspot.
