PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Enrollment opens Monday for parents who want their children to attend virtual school in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia School District's free Virtual Academy is open for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

"The mission of the School District of Philadelphia Virtual Academy is to provide an education that allows students to leverage the use of technology in learning in order to prepare them for college and career readiness in the 21st Century and beyond," the district says.

Parents interested in sending their children are urged to fill out an intake form first on Philadelphia Virtual Academy's website.
