FLVS Corkboard: Summer Edition
Ah, summer. It’s the ideal time for hanging out with friends, heading to the pool or the beach, soaking up the warm weather, enjoying cookouts, reading good books, and maybe taking a vacation with family. It’s been a great year, and you’ve earned a break!
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.” – John Lubbock
In between all the fun, be sure take a few minutes to catch up on FLVS happenings!
FLVS Full Time Graduation
FLVS was honored to celebrate the FLVS Full Time Class of 2019 on May 24 with a projected 715 students graduating. FLVS livestreamed the commencement ceremony as more than 400 seniors walked across stage to receive diplomas—the largest group in FLVS history!
Thank you to our senior students for sharing your stories with us! You can view a few of our featured students on social media by searching for #FLVSClassof2019. Congratulations again to the Class of 2019!

“Spread Your Wings Into A New Beginning”
The Spring 2019 Florida Virtual School Virge Literary Magazine is now posted online. This beautiful publication features original works in writing, photography, art, and design by our talented students. Thank you to our students who submitted their work for this edition, “Spread Your Wings into a New Beginning.”
Here’s a joke for you. “What did the bread do during summer vacation?” “Nothing. It just loafed around!”
Summer is the perfect time to relax, but it is also a great time to enroll with FLVS and get ahead in your studies! FLVS is tuition-free for Florida students, so take advantage of the freedom and flexibility to learn anytime and anywhere!
With more than 190 online courses and 24/7 availability, school doesn’t have to be contained within classroom walls—it can go with you!
Summer is also great time for elementary students to start one of our special area courses! Did you know June is Internet Safety Month? In Elementary Technology, students are introduced to essential skills in digital citizenship–learning all about ways to safely navigate the worldwide web.
FLVS Full Time
FLVS Full Time enrollment is open for the 2019-20 school year for all grades! FLVS Full Time works much like a traditional public school, with the exception that students work from the comfort of their own home. Like in a traditional physical school, classes start in August and end in May and students have a load of six courses at one time – no more, no less. Explore the differences between FLVS Flex and FLVS Full Time.
