How many of my children can I enroll in Tennessee Virtual Academy?

Because Tennessee Virtual Academy provides all the lesson plans and materials needed for kindergarten through grade 8, many parents find it easy to enroll multiple children in the program. We currently have families with as many as five children enrolled in other online public schools who are being guided by one learning coach or mentor with the support of teachers.

Can I take a vacation during the school year?

The school calendar includes school holidays and vacation time. You will not have access to your assigned teacher(s) during this time, but you can continue to do school work. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.

What is an acceptable document to prove my child's age?

Proof of Age: birth certificate, a religious, hospital, or physician's certificate showing date of birth; an entry in a family bible; an adoption record; an affidavit from a parent; a birth certificate; or previously verified school records.

TNVA has enhanced the registration packets to ensure that they are available in alternate languages, including Spanish. In addition, TNVA has added a Google widget to its website to allow text to be translated from English into Spanish and other languages. As a result of these improvements, all communication throughout the enrollment process, including the school's enrollment policy and proof of age requirements are now available in many languages. If you have any questions about this new additions, or TNVA's service for languages other than English, please do not hesitate to contact 865.992.9026.
