Our Mission

  • To engage students by enhancing learning through a variety of virtual and live experiences to support the whole child, personalizing learning for students and preparing them to be valued contributors in a global society.

Our Vision

    • Employ the new curriculum standards and best practices for online instruction and learning, providing quality and rigor for the 21st century learner.
    • Build authentic learning experiences that support students’ lifelong learning.
    • Empower all students to achieve new altitudes and increase confidence.
    • Meet the needs of a diverse student population who cannot or do not attend a traditional public school, offering an option for a quality public education program using the virtual school medium.

TVOLS Advantages

  • You, as a TVOLS student, remain a full time student of the Wilson County School District.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, have opportunities to improve your technical, communication, time management, and organizational skills in a manner that students only taking traditional courses do not.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, can create your own schedule as you have access to your courses 24/7. By signing in daily and completing all assigned work you are in control of your own schedule. While students in a virtual setting may be required to sign in at specific times, YOU decide when, where and what course you will work on each day.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, have an opportunity to become better prepared for online courses you may take in the future as a college student or employee. Students taking TVOLS courses in high school enter college with experience in online learning, therefore having an advantage over students who do not.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, can earn AP (Advanced Placement) and Dual Enrollment credits.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, still have state assessments arranged for you and facilitated by the Wilson County School District. You will just need to make arrangements for transportation to the testing facility on designated testing days for either state assessments or online course final exams. This is typically less than ten days per year.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, can take online courses in an NCAA-approved and AdvancEd Accredited school.
     
    You, as a TVOLS student, get to work with teachers face-to-face on a weekly basis at our Wednesday Work Sessions. You will get to know your teachers personally in a comfortable, on-site learning environment.

    Posted by:

    Enrollment for each semester closes so that our faculty and staff can focus on providing a high quality education to current students. Also, it is not always possible to match courses offered by other schools when students transfer in due to our smaller size and course offerings.
