New Public-School Program Will Set Students on Path to Education – and Career – Success


LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$LRN #CareerFocused--With demand for online school options at an all-time high, enrollment is now open for the 2022-2023 school year at Digital Academy of Texas (DATX), a new full-time, public-school program for Texas students in grades 5-12.

Sponsored by the Texarkana Independent School District, DATX will provide students with a standards-aligned curriculum facilitated by highly qualified Texas-certified teachers, from the safety of their homes or anywhere with an internet connection. And with the school’s unique career-focused approach, students can pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in career exploration.

In addition to core classes, students at DATX can take career-focused electives to explore their options in high-demand fields such as Arts, Technology, Business, Health Services, and IT. And students can work towards resume-building certificates such as Adobe, CompTIA; Microsoft Office Specialist, QuickBooks, and more.

According to labor market data from Indeed.com, more than 310,000 job openings posted in Texas in the last year require an education level less than a bachelor’s degree. And with 3.6M Texas residents carrying nearly $118 billion in student loan debt, DATX is opening at a time when families need learning options that will strengthen students’ future educational prospects.

“When it comes to public education in Texas, students need options that will prepare them for personal and professional success,” said Head of School Melissa Robinette. “As an online school with a proven track record of success as part of its curriculum, DATX is proud to introduce families to a learning environment that meets their needs today and sets them on a path for a bright future.”

DATX’s curriculum is provided by Stride, Inc., an education leader with more than 20 years of experience delivering online education to students across the country. Stride has worked with schools and districts across all 50 states to help develop local solutions to meet personalized online and blended learning goals.
