Family/Sibling Discount

When two or more children in the same family are enrolled in Teacher’s PETS Virtual Academy at the same time, all children in the family are eligible for the TPVA Family Discount of 10% reduction on tuition.

If a family has been receiving the discount, then later finds itself with only one student who remains enrolled in TPVA for any reason (such as when a sibling withdraws from the program, transfers to another school, or graduates from TPVA), the family will not be eligible for the discount the next time the remaining student enrolls in a course.


Parents, please feel free to use this letter for sponsorship for your tuition and fees.

High School

Diploma-seeking, full-time students generally take 5-6 full-credit courses per year, with a goal of earning at least the minimum 21 credits to graduate within four years, as in a traditional high school program. Course options and prices vary; for example, a science course that includes labs will cost a little more, and correspondence (print-based) courses cost a little less. But a student can generally expect a full year of full-time high school courses to cost between $4900 and $5600, depending on the course options you choose. Payment option per month: Between $490 and $560
