Your stories

Why did you choose TXVA?
I have gone to 5 different schools and I lost all my friends every time. There were so many bullies at each school that I went to. So I asked to be home schooled. So I did all my work from books and was home schooled. Then my mom found TXVA! It is perfect and I'm really glad to be here!!! ~Harley, 5th grader
