  • All newly-enrolling families must select either Option I or II for at least their first year with our program. They may select Option III in later years if approved by their reviewer and TEA Director.


  • High school students may be enrolled in Option III, but in order to receive the TEA diploma and/or  transcript, they must be enrolled in Option I or II during 8th to 10th grades and Option I during 11th and 12th grade and must meet all of TEA's graduation requirements. Transfer students entering TEA after 8th grade can still receive a TEA diploma and/or transcript if they meet all enrollment and graduation requirements.


  • TEA accepts high school transfer students only on a limited basis and assesses transfer credit fees for high school credits earned prior to enrollment in TEA if a student wishes to receive TEA's graduation credentials.
