4 Reasons Why Families Choose FLVS
With over 190 engaging online courses, we provide something for everyone – from core and electives to world languages, Advanced Placement (AP), Career and Technical Education (CTE), and more! For homeschool families interested in creating or complementing their K-12 home education curriculum with a variety of real-world learning opportunities, FLVS offers a selection of over 20 CTE courses and eight Programs of Study, allowing students to explore and prepare for college and career success.
Here are just a few things our students said about our courses:
“[FLVS] has so many classes not offered in schools, like Intro to Teaching Professions.” ~ FLVS Student
“The ability to do classwork anywhere, and the high quality of the work make FLVS the best school ever!” ~ FLVS Student
Another reason why families choose FLVS is our flexible online learning environment. Enrollment is open year-round in our FLVS Flex option, allowing students to customize their individual courses to best fit their schedule and personal learning style. These courses involve live, teacher-led instruction, interactive activities, videos, and more. Many of our students love FLVS because the timing gives them the ability and freedom to explore their extracurricular passions. For example:
“FLVS allows me to be flexible and pursue anything I want without school limiting me!” ~ FLVS Student
“We love FLVS and the freedom it gives our children to pursue their love of dance and theater.” ~ FLVS Parent
An exciting realization for many families once their student begins courses with FLVS is the level of one-on-one support and encouragement they receive from their teachers. Once placed in a course, a student will receive a phone call from their teacher, known as a “Welcome Call.” This allows teachers to introduce themselves and get to know the student/family, as well as set expectations for the course.
Supportive teachers are always just a text or call away. And many of our families often express that they feel more connected with their FLVS teachers than traditional brick-and-mortar teachers, due to the frequency and depth of their interactions. Our teachers foster connections with their students and support them to achieve their educational goals.
“The teachers are awesome! I love how nice and fun it is to go at my own pace.” ~ FLVS Student
“It’s the perfect balance of the education system. I recommend it to everyone I know.” ~ FLVS Parent
A Safe Environment
Safety comes in all forms here at FLVS. From giving students a space where they can feel authentically themselves without fear of being bullied, to supporting students who have illnesses, to providing mental health and counselor resources, and more, our goal is to offer learning opportunities that prepare students for the future in an environment they feel confident in.
“[I chose FLVS] because I know my child is in a safe environment.” ~ FLVS Parent
“FLVS makes me feel safe because I’m in my home.” ~ FLVS Student
