Katy ISD students soon to be in ninth through eleventh grades may benefit from supplemental virtual classes as an opportunity to earn graduation credits and to expand their learning opportunities. The Katy Virtual School, a paid online course program, will begin accepting enrollments Feb. 1 for the summer, fall and spring semesters of the 2022-23 school year.

“This paid, supplemental virtual model of e-learning is in high demand with our high school students because it supports graduation plans and delivers quality instruction to Katy ISD learners, outside of normal school hours,” said Susan Richards, Katy ISD instructional technology e-learning manager, in a press release. “KVS courses support students who need a flexible schedule to participate in programs during the school day. It’s an excellent opportunity for students.”



KVS offers various courses, including Creative Writing, AP Art History, English III, World Geography, Economics and Psychology. The school offers over 45 Advanced Placement and Katy Advanced Program courses to students, and more opportunities are added every year. Most KVS courses cost $200 per semester.

The KVS program enrolls over 4,000 high school students each year and has offered online courses developed and taught by Katy ISD teachers since 2013.

For more information, students can visit with their campus counselor, email KVS at [email protected] or visit the Katy ISD Virtual School website.
