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 course plans (no cost) and dual enrollment courses (tuition applies) are available.
Please refer to Online High School Course Plans and Dual Enrollment Courses for more information. If you have any questions, email Dr. Stacy Trasancos at firstname.lastname@example.org, Director of Bishop Gorman Online.
The online high school course plans are based on the curriculum requirements of the on-campus classes taught by Bishop Gorman teachers.
The courses that Bishop Gorman offers its on-campus students are listed as resources for homeschool families: 1) a list of textbooks used, 2) curriculum standards, and as available 3) lesson plans from the teachers. Parents and students may use these resources freely and at no charge.
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.
