The Enrollment Process at the School of Choice, Miami-Dade Online Academy (MDO), consists of three major parts:


Parents and students should become familiar with our school and determine if it is a good fit for them. They can then check the student’s eligibility by visiting the tab titled Eligibility on the MDO website. After obtaining the necessary information, they must apply during the open enrollment period between March and July. The admissions office will review the application and notify the parent by email if the student is not qualified. If the student is pre-approved, they will receive an email and commitment letter with instructions regarding the next steps. Failure to comply with the directions given will change the student’s status to Declined.

Pre-Approved Status:

Parents must submit the required documents via an email in a PDF format to the Admission’s Office. All documents must be submitted before the student’s application is considered for enrollment in MDO. After the documents are reviewed, the Admissions office will schedule a face-to-face meeting to register the student officially. The parent is required to bring the original documents submitted to the meeting. During the meeting, the student will be photographed for the identification card they will be using at testing facilities and various meetings. Before the face-to-face meeting, parents and students should be acquainted with the virtual options. MDO only chooses virtual options that have researched-based educational curriculum approved by the State of Florida. Currently, MDO offers Broward Virtual, K-12 (kindergarten through 12-grade curriculum), and Palm Beach Virtual.

Enrolled Status:

Once the student is accepted and enrolled, both the student and parent are required to attend a four-hour face-to-face training. At this training, the families will receive an overview of the program, responsibilities of the student, parent monitoring practices, how to run a public school in your home and hands-on training on the online provider’s program. Lastly, the school counselor will guide the student in selecting the 6-virtual online courses.
