Enroll at MNOHS now!

Quarter 3 starts January 31. Confirmed enrollments will be accepted through February 12--the sooner the better.

All MNOHS students must have a computer, a high speed Internet connection, and a headset.
No special software required!

MNOHS courses are designed by licensed Minnesota teachers, using a palette of free software tools and software provided by MNOHS.  MNOHS provides all software needed for students via a virtual desktop.  We recommend using a laptop or desktop for the best experience at MNOHS.  Some tablets do not work with MNOHS technology.    The software you will be using is all free and accessible.

Audio requirement

To take full advantage of the listening and speaking tools available to online learners, you'll need a headset with a microphone and speaker that can be plugged into your computer.  This does not have to be a costly, high-end gaming or music headset. A good quality communication headset can be purchased for around $20 at most retail stores.  If possible, look for one that connects to your computer's USB port.
