Online Courses for Acceleration

  • Irving ISD offers select courses for credit acceleration to high school students at no charge. If eligible, students may earn initial credit through online instruction with a certified Irving ISD teacher outside of the school day. Courses offered include PE, Government, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, English IV, Art 1, Speech, and Health.

    Ideal students for online classes are self motivated and have enough time to devote to the virtual class, usually 4-5 hours per week. Students are limited to one course per semester.  If students are interested in taking an online class they should register here. After requesting a course, the school counselor determines if a student is eligible for online classes. If the counselor recommends the student for participation, a student will be enrolled in the course for the semester. All classes begin with an in-person orientation meeting.  Classes start in September for the fall semester, January for the spring semester, and June for the summer semester. All students will need to have a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian to be enrolled.
