How many of my children can I enroll in TVAH?

There is no limit to the number of children a family can enroll.

What does it cost to attend TVAH?

TVAH is a public school program, so there is no tuition. We provide a Texas-certified teacher and instructional materials. Students and families will be responsible for providing some consumable materials (such as printer ink and paper). Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.

What is the attendance policy?

As Texas public school students, all students enrolled in TVAH must comply with the state-required minimum number of 180 instructional days. Attendance is logged daily in the Online School by a parent or Learning Coach.

Can our family take a vacation during the school year?

The school calendar includes school holidays or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their student's teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar. All students are required to attend state testing during the TVAH testing windows.
