21-22 Online School Enrollment

Enrollment is Open

Bristol Tennessee City Schools and Greeneville City Schools, two high-performing school districts, have entered into an exciting new partnership to provide a full K-12 online learning experience through Tennessee Online Public School (TOPS). TOPS will be the district’s only online option for the 2021-2022 school year.

BTCS launched TOPS in 2012. Since that time, the three-time Reward School in the state of Tennessee, has been providing a quality high school program statewide. Through this unique partnership, TOPS is expanding to offer the same exceptional level of online education for elementary and middle school students. At the elementary level, TOPS is collaborating with the Early Childhood Education Department at East Tennessee State University for continued research and application of best practices in online learning for younger students.  

TOPS offers greater flexibility and more student voice and choice than traditional learning experiences. Furthermore, students attending TOPS have the opportunity to cultivate relationships with certified and highly-qualified teachers, unlike other impersonal, online programs that have appeared across the country since the pandemic. TOPS quality instruction is designed to prepare students for life by providing the best environment for both teacher-led and self-paced work. TOPS provides a flexible schedule for students who may wish to pursue athletics, extracurricular, or career work while maintaining academic interests and successes.

All Bristol students who enroll in TOPS will remain students in Bristol Tennessee City Schools. Students in grades K-5 will have a full-time teacher at each grade level who will be dedicated solely to providing not only engaging instruction but also the additional level of support needed for younger learners to succeed in the online learning environment. Middle and high school students from Bristol will be able to participate in sports and extracurricular programs at Tennessee Middle School and Tennessee High School.

Application for the TOPS program is now open for students in grades K-12.
