Welcome to the Minnesota Service Cooperatives (MSC) Online Learning Community!
This learning community is sponsored by the Northeast Service Cooperative in collaboration with our member school districts and the Lakes Country Service Cooperative and Resource Training & Solutions.
The MSC Online Learning Program:
- Provides challenging educational opportunities for students who need credit recovery, advanced, additional or specialized courses, and/or a flexible learning environment.
- Is certified by the Minnesota Department of Education to offer online curriculum to students in grades 7-12. All online courses offered through approved programs are:
- Taught by Minnesota licensed teachers
- Meet or exceed state academic standards
- Transfer to other public school districts
- Apply toward high school graduation
- Is a part-time, non-diploma program, so students will remain enrolled in their own districts while taking courses with MSC Online.
