Open Enrollment for the 2018–2019 School Year Is Here—Apply Now!

The open enrollment period for the 2018–2019 school year is February 5–April 30, 2018.

Steps to Enroll

Step 1: Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Open Enrollment Process

Complete the online Open Enrollment application between February 5 and 4 PM on April 30, 2018.

  • This step must be completed for any family residing outside of McFarland School District. Students who currently reside in McFarland School District do NOT need to submit the DPI Open Enrollment application and should contact the McFarland School District for further information.

When asked to indicate the school and/or NONRESIDENT school district to which you are applying, please enter "Wisconsin Virtual Academy K–8 (WIVA K–8)” or “Wisconsin Virtual Academy High School (WIVA High School)”and "McFarland School District" in the appropriate fields.

Please note that submitting a Wisconsin DPI Open Enrollment application (Step 1) does not automatically enroll your student in Wisconsin Virtual Academy. If your DPI Open Enrollment application is approved, you must then complete the K12 online enrollment process on the parent portal (Step 2) to officially be enrolled.

Important Upcoming Dates

  • June 8, 2018: Wisconsin Virtual Academy will mail you a letter by this date indicating whether your application has been approved.
  • June 29, 2018: If your Open Enrollment application is approved, an Intent to Attend form will be included in your acceptance letter. This form must be completed and returned by June 29, 2018.

Step 2: K12 Online Parent Portal

Once your Open Enrollment application is approved, you will need to complete the online enrollment process on the Parent Portal. The link and instructions to enroll will be included in your acceptance letter.
