AVA Graduates

AVA Graduates
Recent HISD graduates Juanita Bonilla (right) and Marc Leal are just two of the three dozen students expected to receive their high school diplomas before summer's end through the Twilight High School program. Marc completed his degree requirements at Yates High School, while Juanita finished hers at Jones High School.


Welcome to the Advanced Virtual Academy, HISD's Twilight High School.  We first opened our doors in November 2010.  We engage students in an online learning environment through rigorous instruction.  Each student is given an individualized learning plan that promotes progress to graduation. We welcome the all learners and provide them an opportunity to earn a high school diploma.  

We offer a nontraditional, alternative school setting for students who are unable to attend high school during the regular day. Students may take advantage of a flexible schedule while engaging in blended learning coupled with online resources and personalized support. Students are provided with academic support from certified teachers, and all online courses are self-paced. AVA also welcomes students who have dropped out or who are in danger of dropping out of school. 

We encourage you to email or contact us by telephone if you would like to know more about the academy. Tours are available throughout the school year. Visiting one of our six campuses and meeting our teachers and students is the best way to learn more about us. We welcome the opportunity to meet you and provide you with a quality education!
