Virtual Academy Enrollment

What is the Virtual Academy?

The Forney ISD Virtual Academy is an online program that serves 9th through 12th grade students that are Texas residents. Developed to meet the growing needs of our students and families, Virtual Academy offers the flexibility to learn in an educational program that fits the needs of your student. Once enrolled, students participate in asynchronous classwork and have access to an onsite location for in-person support. With two different pathways, there is an option for every student!
