In order to be eligible to receive a position in our school, should one become available, you must submit all required forms and documentation included in the TXVA Enrollment Forms Packet. This includes proof of enrollment in a public school for the prior school year, unless you meet one of the specific exempt requirements.
Once you submit your application, you will be assigned a Personal Admissions Liaison (PAL) who will assist you through the enrollment process, answer all of your questions, and conduct your admissions conference over the phone. During this conference, your PAL will verify your student's information, relay school policies, and review the responsibilities of both the student and the Learning Coach.
The parent and/or legal guardian of every student enrolling in grades 3–12 must also complete the TXVA Acknowledgement of Expectations form by attending a pre-enrollment conference as part of the enrollment process. This will be required before a student is approved. These sessions are intended to ensure families fully understand the instructional model and expectations of the student, parents, and school, as well as identify each student's individual needs before the first day of school. Families residing in rural or isolated areas of the state may participate in a one-to-one online conference to fulfill this requirement. Details concerning in-person or online events will be provided during your admissions conference.
If a position is available in our school, and you have submitted all required forms and documentation included in the TXVA Enrollment Forms Packet, your student will be approved. You may review your student's enrollment status by logging in to your online account.
Thanks for your interest in Texas Virtual Academy! We look forward to serving you and your family in all of your education needs.
