High School Curriculum

Courses Specifically Designed for High School Students

Texas Virtual Academy (TXVA) uses the K12 high school curriculum to serve our students in grades 9–12. The K12 high school environment features elegant and research-driven design, compelling interactivity, and ease of use of both online and offline content—with key features designed to make the high school experience successful, given the far more complex high school world of content, skills, and time management.

In order to ensure students are successful, Texas-certified teachers lead online class sessions and provide both general instruction and small group focused instruction. All coursework is aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and students are provided with a rigorous curriculum that prepares them for postsecondary success. As part of the ResponsiveEd® network of schools, students are expected to graduate on the Recommended or Distinguished graduation plans or graduate with an Endorsement in Multi-Disciplinary Studies, Arts and Humanities, or STEM.

Students participate in the state End-of-Course (EOC) STAAR assessments in Algebra 1, English 1, English 2, Biology, and U.S. History as part of the graduation requirements for receiving a Texas high school diploma.

Parents with student athletes interested in competing in Division I or II college athletics should review the NCAA requirements for courses taken at TXVA upon enrolling.
