Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Online

In accordance with the mission to fulfill the educational ministry of the Catholic Church, Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Online is developing a new program to eventually extend Catholic education to all students in the Diocese of Tyler. Beginning in the fall of 2018, online high school courses and dual enrollment courses are available.

Since the primary goal is the ongoing formation of the Christian person, online students are welcome to participate in Bishop Gorman spiritual and social activities such as attending Masses, performances, or sports events.

Please refer to Online High School Courses and Dual Enrollment Courses for more information. If you have any questions, email Dr. Stacy Trasancos at, Director of Bishop Gorman Online.

Online High School Courses

The online high school courses meet the curriculum requirements of the on-campus classes and are taught by Bishop Gorman teachers.

The courses are asynchronous, meaning that live classes are not held. Instead, assignments and lectures will be delivered through a learning management system (Canvas) according to a structured timeline. Students are required to submit their work to be graded by the instructor. The instructor is available to teach the student one-to-one through email, telephone, or teleconference. Major exams and hands-on labs are conducted on campus and proctored by a teacher a few times per semester.

Dual Enrollment Courses

The dual enrollment courses meet Texas state and The University of Texas at Tyler PACE Program requirements and are taught jointly by university and high school faculty. 

The courses are delivered in both online and on-campus methods. The on-campus courses are either taught by a university faculty member on the high school campus, or the university faculty member is the instructor of record online and a high school facilitator guides the students in a classroom on the high school campus. The online courses are delivered fully online following the same format as the high school online courses but with a university faculty member as the instructor of record.
