High School Program

TTU K-12 students come from all different backgrounds but share one common goal: a pursuit of academic success. The TTU K-12 high school diploma program offers a state-accredited alternative to students who need or desire the flexibility of a distance education to earn their high school diploma.

High School Diploma Program Information

We offer all courses necessary to meet the requirements to complete a Texas high school graduation plan.

Students will be awarded a Texas high school diploma once all graduation criteria are met. TTU K-12 students can graduate at any time throughout the year, with the option of walking in our annual graduation ceremony each spring.

Most courses require students to purchase textbooks or other required materials at an additional cost.

Students must obtain at least 2.5 credits through TTU K-12 coursework to graduate from the full-time program. The last 2.5 credits must also be earned through TTU K-12 courses rather than Credit by Exams.

Full-time enrollment status is maintained by a student's academic progress (one lesson per week) in a minimum of four courses.

Credit by Exams (CBEs) are available to full-time TTU K-12 students who feel they have already mastered that courses' content.

CBEs and supplemental courses are available to part-time students who need credit recovery or acceleration options.

In addition to coursework, students must pass the appropriate state-required graduation assessments (TAKS or STAAR/EOC), which is determined by the year the student entered ninth grade.
