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.
We provide fully online courses to students in Lewisville ISD as well as to students across Texas through the Texas Virtual Schools Network (TXVSN). Our courses are all taught by teachers certified in in Texas in their subject as well as highly trained in methods of online teaching. We have a wide range of core subject area courses as well as electives providing you many options for your next learning adventure. You can pick and choose your courses so that you have a blend of classes taken on your home campus mixed with online classes. Scheduling this way allows you to free up your schedule for other classes or activities such as arts, sports, or even a job. You can even use our courses to accelerate your learning allowing you to take additional classes per term to help you meet personal goals such as early graduation.
Our courses are high touch allowing you easy access to your teachers. We value building relationships with our students. Therefore, you will have many opportunities to connect with your teachers individually as well as in small groups. All of our courses meet NCAA eligibility requirements.
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.
