Due to the continued rise in COVID-19 cases in Stearns County, and following recommended guidelines provided by the Minnesota Department of Health, it is likely all students will move to a distance learning model beginning on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

Athlos Virtual Academy

Is returning to campus just not right for your family right now? At Athlos, we worked over the summer to create Athlos Virtual Academy, a complete distance learning option for students.

This program includes live Zoom classes, pre-recorded lessons, and opportunities to engage with peers through Athlos programs like our Athletic Movement Classes and Classroom Huddles – all from the safety of home! Athlos Virtual Academy is adapted from Athlos’s on-campus, innovative education model.

Our distance learning program not only offers a high-quality, easy to follow curriculum and learning environment, but also gives student the interaction with their peers that they need. We also have accommodations for students who need extra support or an extra challenge. Our virtual students have access to everything a student learning on campus would, including technology and breakfast and lunch!

What’s best, is we know parents want consistency and normalcy this school year. Our Athlos Virtual Academy student have the option to participate in our program from a distance all school year! They also will have the option, if current COVID-19 conditions remain the same, to return to campus at the change of the semester. That means you can keep learning from home until summer, if you so choose.

Our comprehensive distance learning program is also now an opportunity to any K-8 student living in the state of Minnesota. That’s right, anyone in the state of Minnesota can apply.

We worked hard this summer to make sure our program offered in the spring was even better than before! Here’s what families had to say about distance learning with Athlos.


“I love that my daughter can do her schoolwork at our convenience… I love that her teacher had reached out and does Zoom calls three times a week.
It gives us some normalcy.”

–Athlos Parent


“Zoom class meetings and the teachers recording lessons/story time. I also have been SO impressed with a couple of our teachers who have gone above and beyond dropping things off for the kids and planning special events.
It has really helped!”

–Athlos Parent


“The teachers are very interactive and make learning easy for students and parents.”

–Athlos Parent


“Love the amazing effort the teachers are putting into creating creative content for the kids to continue to learn despite not being in the building. We also love the Zoom class sessions with their teachers. They still get to see their classmates and have the teaching time with their teachers.”

–Athlos Parent
