Welcome

  • Dr. Chris Bigenho

    Welcome to the new School Year! 

    Welcome to the Virtual Learning Academy at Lewisville Independent School District. We are pleased you are here and invite you to take a look around as you consider new options for learning. With so many possibilities to choose from for your learning path, this is an amazing time to be a student and VLA is sure to have something just for you.

    In 2014, Lewisville ISD adopted an A la Carte BlendED learning model allowing students to pick a learning modality that best fits their schedule and preferences for learning. Lewisville students may build a custom school schedule from a menu of choices including face-to-face, blended, and fully online classes.

    This approach affords students agency in how and when they learn providing them flexibility to pursue personal interests and unique opportunities while getting an amazing education. While I have been fortunate to have participated fully in all of these modalities over my entire learning career, it is amazing that a student in LISD can experience all of these within their short time in our district!

    The Virtual Learning Academy faculty and staff have prepared a special place for you and invite you to take your next learning adventure with us. We look forward to guiding you in selecting a course and adventure that is right for you. Please take a moment to explore more about the different learning modalities and courses we offer through LISD and the Texas Virtual School Network. Please know that we are here to help you should you have any questions as you plan which BlendED option is best for you. We look forward to serving you and seeing you online soon.
