How It Works (K-8)

Tennessee Virtual Academy is a tuition-free online public school program that uses the K12 curriculum, which is accessed via an Online School (OLS) as well as through more traditional methods. Materials are delivered right to the family's doorstep—including books, CDs, and even microscopes and cell samples for science projects.

We also partner parents and students with a highly qualified, Tennessee-certified teacher to guide and track their progress and achievement through the curriculum. There are frequent face-to-face meetings and events as well.

Student-to-student interaction is also emphasized, so TNVA students are provided with a variety of opportunities for social activities and engagement.

Who is this intended for?

TNVA serves K–8 students who reside within the state of Tennessee.

What are the costs?

Because we are part of the public school system, Tennessee Virtual Academy is tuition free. The entire K12 curriculum is provided free of charge.
