Paid Virtual Classes Offer Flexibility
“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.
Through these classes, students can earn credit towards graduation while expanding their learning opportunities.
Frees Up Time for Student Programing During the Day
“KVS courses support students who need a flexible schedule to participate in programs during the school day. It’s an excellent opportunity for students,” says Richards.
Katy students can choose from many courses including Creative Writing, AP Art History, English III, World Geography, Economics, Psychology and more. There are over 45 Advanced Placement (AP), Katy Advanced Program (KAP) and academic level courses available to students and the program grows with more classes each year.

Most KVS courses are $200 per semester. Students can register online starting February 1, 2022 at 7:00 a.m.
According to Katy ISD, over 4,000 high school students enroll in KVS each year. The program launched in 2013. All courses are taught by Katy ISD teachers.
