The NEW Keller ISD Virtual Learning Academy will open in Fall 2021!
Enrollment will be available to all students residing within the Keller ISD boundaries, entering grades 3-8, who are ready for the challenges and opportunities associated with a full-time virtual learning program. Applications will be accepted beginning May 12.
The Keller ISD Virtual Learning Academy is a tuition-free, online public school that provides learners with engaging and challenging instruction within a fully online learning environment. Students who are ready for a virtual learning experience participate in rigorous academic courses aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.
Specifically trained teachers deliver innovative instruction that is designed to integrate future-ready skills including technology proficiency, digital citizenship, critical and creative thinking, study skills, collaboration, leadership, and social-emotional learning skills.
Virtual Learning Academy students commit to transferring campuses and attending throughout the entire school year.
Important Note: Establishment of the Keller ISD Virtual Learning Academy is dependent upon changes to Texas state law, currently under review by the 87th Legislature, which is meeting through May 31. If state lawmakers do not amend TEA requirements regarding virtual learning programs, existing laws would prevent Keller ISD from moving forward with the Virtual Learning Academy. Please note that, at this time, grades K-2 are not being included in proposed legislation.
