Virtual Learning Program
Students who participate in travel sports, Olympic Development Programs or extensive competitive training no longer have to be counted absent or considered truant. The Tuscaloosa City Schools offers a no-cost, online school available to high school students living within the TCS attendance zones. By enrolling as a part-time online student, you now have the benefit of extending your learning with virtual courses that can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Full time students must be approved by the Deputy Superintendent prior to enrollment.
TCS offers a non-traditional public education provided through the Virtual Learning Program. These courses are developed and taught by highly-qualified, certified teachers or facilitated through an online curriculum aligned to the Alabama Department of Education College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS).
This is a fully-accredited virtual school learning program, powered by Edmentum. Contact your school's counselor or the director of college and career readiness at 205-759-3700.
