  • Fall 2019 VLA Registration is Now Open!

    Posted by Christopher Bigenho on 7/22/2019

    Summer is rapidly coming to an end and the excitement of school year is right around the corner. Here is a chance to take your learning to the clouds- Enroll in Fall VLA today! This past year, hundreds of high school students from across the district selected to take one or more of their classes online through VLA during the regular school year.

     We offer a full catalog of classes in English, Math, Social Studies, World Languages, Art, and PE. Additional classes are also available through our expanded Texas Virtual Schools Network (TXVSN) listings. All LISD provided courses can be taken at no cost to you when taken during the school day and for a nominal fee when taken outside the school day. Courses from TXVSN range from $300 to $400 per half credit. Unfortunately, we are not able to discount any courses selected from TXVSN. Therefore, the LISD courses are your best option if they fit your needs.

     VLA online classes during the school year are a great fit for you if you are…

    • Looking for more flexibility with how and where you do your learning
    • Looking to take additional AP classes before you graduate
    • Looking to free up your schedule for more Fine Arts, CTE classes, and other special programs
    • Wanting to experience a different type of learning environment, one you will likely experience in college and career
    • Wanting to accelerate and graduate early
    • You are looking for more flexibility in your schedule to pursue other dreams such as soccer, gymnastics, music, hockey, work, etc.

     9th graders can take up to one credit per term. Depending on the rest of your schedule, students grades 10 through 12 may be able to take up to 2 credits per term. See your counselors to see what works for you.

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 option is best for you. We look forward to serving you and seeing you online soon.
