Texas Virtual Academy at Hallsville Kicks off Inaugural School Year on August 27


Statewide Online Public School to Serve Texas Students in Grades 3-12

Virtual Academy at Hallsville
(TVAH), a full-time online public
school, begins its inaugural school year on August 27. Made possible
through a partnership between the Hallsville Independent School District
and K12 Inc., TVAH is a public school at home option available
tuition-free to students statewide in grades 3-12.

TVAH provides families and students an alternative to traditional
brick-and-mortar education. Students enroll in online school for a
variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free
environment and the ability to balance their education with
extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. Combining innovative
technology with a rigorous curriculum led by state-certified teachers,
TVAH will offer each student a personalized learning experience tailored
to fit his or her needs.

"We are excited to welcome students for our first school year at TVAH,"
said Catherine Groven, head of school at Texas Virtual Academy at
Hallsville. "We recognize that each student has unique needs, and we are
proud to offer a personalized education designed to allow our students
to find the learning style that works best for them."

Through live and recorded class sessions that are accessed online,
students and their teachers can engage and interact as if they were
sitting in a traditional classroom. Students will also complete
schoolwork using hands-on educational materials that are shipped to
their homes.

Students in all grade levels will take a full course load across the
core subjects of English/language arts, math, science and history, as
well as world languages, art, music and electives. College- or
career-minded students can choose profession-focused courses in order to
gain a competitive edge for the future, discover their path after high
school or explore a possible college major. All courses are approved by
the Texas Virtual School Network to meet Texas Essential Knowledge and
Skills (TEKS) and iNACOL standards for online courses.

TVAH's dedicated teachers will facilitate lessons during live,
interactive online classes, and interact with students and families via
phone, email, web-based classrooms and online discussions, building
close partnerships with parents and students to support academic
success. The online platform enables students to enjoy a safe learning
environment while connecting with classmates and teachers from across
the state.

Throughout the school year, TVAH will build a sense of community through
in-person field trips and social outings. TVAH will also celebrate
graduating seniors with an in-person commencement ceremony in the
spring, and virtual clubs and student organizations will allow students
to further explore their interests in the online setting.

TVAH is currently accepting enrollments for the fall. Interested
families are encouraged to attend online information sessions hosted by
the school. To learn more, visit
