NonResident Open Enrollment

Please Note: We are not accepting Alternative Open Enrollment at this time due to space limitations.

Enrollment in Bridges Virtual Academy is closed at this time. Due to the unprecedented level of enrollment this year, our need to appropriately support students in the virtual setting and the timeline for developing an individualized learning plan for students, we are unable to process new applicants. We will remain closed to any new enrollment for at least the first semester of 2020-21.

IMPORTANT NOTE: By Wisconsin State Statute, parents are only allowed to apply ONE time in a specific school district for enrollment through the open-enrollment process; therefore, if you apply during the regular open-enrollment period and are denied due to space, you are not allowed to use the alternative open-enrollment process to re-apply, even if there is space available during any given school year. If you have questions about this process, please contact the Department of Public Instruction.

If you have any questions regarding Wisconsin's open-enrollment process, please contact the DPI. If you have questions regarding a submitted open-enrollment application, please contact the MAPS' district administrative office at 715.536.4581.
