The Dallas ISD Evening Academy will start next week for high school students across the district.

Courses, which begin March 8, are held online on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This program is meant for students who are “sufficiently self-motivated to log in to scheduled classes and complete assignments and are willing to put in the work to keep progressing.” It provides an opportunity for those who are not able to attend traditional classes, as well as those who want to make up credits or earn additional credits.

“These are students who need to attend online classes because they don’t have time during the day because they’re working or supporting their families or who attend school during the day but don’t have enough time in their schedule to adequately access coursework,” says Evening Academy administrator Erlene Williams.

About 500 students earn credits through the Evening Academy each year, taking courses in social studies, math, science,  English and more.

To apply, students should contact their school counselors.
