Marana Distance Learning (MDL) is the leader in Arizona in online learning! Distance learning brings families and students the highest level of full-time, comprehensive online instruction. 

Grades 4-12 Distance Learning Student Considerations

Open to MUSD students in grades 4-12, Marana Distance Learning is an option for highly motivated, organized students who wish to receive their education online. Distance Learning courses suit students who prefer to work independently and are able to prioritize and complete tasks on their own. Therefore, we encourage families who are exploring this option to carefully consider their student’s academic skills and learning style. Students who need support services to access grade level content may require additional consideration before enrolling in MDL.

Distance Learning For High School Credit Advancement or Retrieval

Students who are interested in taking a distance learning course for credit advancement or credit retrieval should make an appointment with their counselor to discuss options.

About Course Curriculum
MDL provides a personalized educational experience designed around the student’s needs. With more than 80 self-paced courses, students gain the valuable skills necessary for success in an ever-changing world. Course content is generated via Mesa Distance Learning.

Enrollment Open to All Students Living in Southern Arizona
Registration opens in mid-July, prior to the start of the new school year. Upon completing registration, you will receive a confirmation email and our team will begin collecting and reviewing records from previous schools.  This process can take up to one week. Once we've processed your records, someone will contact you to create a success plan and discuss your goals for online coursework, and enroll you in courses. Please be advised that we may request that you provide proof of Arizona residency, birth certificate, or immunization records if they do not accompany your school records.
