Letter From the Principal

Welcome to the Distance Learning Academy (DLA), an online option with a traditional high school feel. Students at DLA attend courses online from the convenience of home, while having an option to join students at a Tolleson Union High School District campus to participate in sports, extracurriculars, and more!

DLA students can enroll in dual enrollment, choose Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses, and build relationships with their peers through activities like fall festivals, homecoming, and prom. They even get to walk across the stage with their home school during graduation ceremonies.

At DLA, we understand that our students need something different. Many times, our students learn better from the comforts of home. Or maybe our students need a learning option that allows them a flexible schedule. The Distance Learning Academy supports students wherever they are, whatever their needs may be.

There is no bell schedule for DLA students. You start your day at your convenience. Courses are also conveniently prerecorded so you can pause and play when it’s the right time for you to learn. Because lessons are prerecorded, students can watch them as often as they’d like to make sure the information is retained and understood.

Our teachers also keep office hours, allowing students to connect with them for more help. Students can give them a call or log into a video chat for real time help.

DLA students enroll in four classes at a time. English and math are set at a ‘regular’ pace, meaning the entire semester. Science, social studies, and electives are ‘rapid pace’ courses, which run nine weeks long. This model allows students to manage less courses so they can focus more on the subjects at hand. Students will earn the same number of credits per semester as a traditional campus. We also provide a free computer to each student while they are enrolled with our district.

We want the high school experience to fit your needs. DLA is your answer.

Enroll today!
