After a Year Like No Other, Tennessee Virtual Academy is Ready to Help Students Succeed in the New School Year

Tennessee Virtual Academy (TNVA), a full-time online public school which is a program of Union County, TN Board of Education, is ready to kick off the new school year and give students throughout the state a consistent education option designed to help them reach their full potential. TNVA students and teachers will open their laptops to start the 2021-2022 school year tomorrow, August 9.

For most families, the new school year comes with cautious optimism. Many families realized during the pandemic that attending school online is a safe alternative that allows them to focus on their child’s future. According to a recent survey by Stride, Inc., 91 percent of parents agree that it’s important for their children to have multiple school options, including full-time online or a hybrid model that blends online and in-person learning. And almost two-thirds of parents would consider full-time online public school after their 2020 pandemic-driven virtual education experience.

Staffed by state-licensed teachers, TNVA offers a personalized approach to learning, delivering engaging curriculum designed to assist students who seek individualized pathways to education. Despite wide-spread evidence of a “COVID slide” of learning loss for students in the U.S. during the pandemic, Stride K12-powered schools like TNVA reported lower learning loss rates than those reported in national studies.

“Students choose online learning for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the flexibility to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs while maintaining a focus on academics,” Said TNVA Head of School Dr. Tonya Vandergriff Childress. “TNVA’s online platform allows students to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and at an appropriate pace for their learning style.”

To learn more about TNVA and how to enroll, visit or download the Stride K12 mobile app for iOS and Android devices - where families can enroll, prepare for the first day of school, and monitor students’ academic progress throughout the school year.
