About UT High School

UT High School was authorized by the Texas State Board of Education in 1998 to provide a high school curriculum and to award diplomas. Students in the UT High School come from many walks of life, but all of them have a common goal: to pursue academic success through distance education. The diverse student body includes students with professional careers, students who are being home-schooled, students in remote locations, students who are older than traditional students, students who want to accelerate their education, and students who want more independence in their educational choices.

Many academically strong juniors and seniors take advantage of UT High School’s dual credit options, which allow students to take college courses that simultaneously fulfill high school graduation requirements. By doing this, a high school student earns credit for not only the college course, but also for the equivalent high school course.
