“We are excited to kick off another year of helping our students succeed,” said high school English teacher Stacy Head. “The online classroom lets our students find and be themselves, and our personalized approach to learning means I can provide them with the tools they need to grow.”
By combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by state-certified teachers, TVAH offers a learning experience tailored to fit each student’s needs. Through live and recorded online sessions, students can access their classrooms from any computer with an internet connection.

For many students, TVAH offers an education they may not otherwise have access to, with unique course offerings to prepare them for college and career opportunities.
Throughout the school year, TVAH builds a sense of community through in-person field trips and social outings.
