Meet FLVS Student Zac
Zac has been with FLVS since the summer of 2014. He is a homeschool student, although he takes a pretty full load of classes with FLVS.
In January of 2013, Zachary and I (his mom) headed out to Hollywood for him to pursue his dream of becoming an actor – a decision his dad and I made together. We had the support of our community and his teachers, as well as his principal.
We withdrew him from his current elementary school in Tallahassee and began to homeschool him while in CA. We were there through June, then returned home to Florida for a few weeks.
At that time, we decided to enroll in FLVS so he would have more “structure” to his schooling and the advantage of teachers and classroom-like lessons.
FLVS has been great for Zac and his crazy filming schedule. We travel between Florida, Los Angeles, and Atlanta where he is currently filming the remainder of Season 2 of Finding Carter, a drama series on MTV. He plays the role of Grant Wilson. With FLVS, Zac can do what he loves, living out his dream of being an actor and continuing with his schooling. We are so grateful for the teachers who have been so supportive. They always ask about how things are going for him in the acting world during our monthly calls.
Now heading into the 8th grade, Zac is an Honor Roll student. His dad and I are very proud and looking forward to seeing what the future holds for him.
Thank you to FLVS for your continued support and offering such great classes. He has been able to take some fun subjects such as Guitar and Outdoor Education in which he received his Boater Safety License!
