      Hi Ann. Students who attend FLVS Full Time (our full-time public school option) do receive a diploma from FLVS. Other students take FLVS Flex courses as a homeschool student or in addition to their traditional public or private school classes and receive their diploma there. Some Florida districts offer FLVS courses through their county virtual school (like Orange County Virtual School), but the details there depend on your local school district. Hope this helps!
