MCFARLAND, Wis., April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wisconsin Virtual Academy (WIVA), a tuition-free online public charter school, reminds families with students in grades K-12 who are considering WIVA to submit an application during the state's open enrollment period which ends at 4 PM CST on Thursday, April 30, 2015.

To help parents and children learn more about the program, WIVA will host free online information sessions on Wednesday, April 29, and Thursday, April 30.
