For re-enrolling families on a TRA diploma track, an academic planning session with the TRA Guidance Counselor is required prior to being enrolled in any classes. Please call and schedule a meeting.

Full Enrollment (University Model) 5th -12th Grades
Classes are offered in 2-hour blocks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Qualified teachers provide lectures, projects, assignments, and assessments all in a small classroom setting. Students can complete the practical (assigned work that leads to mastery of content) at home under the direction of their parents.
Guided Study is an additional education service made available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for those students who need to work with a teacher for the completion of all practical work, assessments, and projects.
Guided Study provides the opportunity to be on campus 3, 4, or all 5 days. Space is limited.
Parents may opt to have their children take courses other than those offered on campus including courses taught at home, tutored courses, virtual courses, and apprenticeship opportunities. With approved curriculum and documentation of content mastery and grades, these courses can be listed on a student's transcript and become part of their academic record.
Students who receive state scholarships cannot incorporate any home schooled courses into their academic plan. FTC students can take up to 2 FLVS courses annually.
Parents are responsible for purchasing the textbooks and materials.
