Online Options for Students to Learn from Home

As schools across the country consider various scenarios for the upcoming school year, parents are in the difficult position of ensuring their children’s education continues this fall.

Florida Virtual School (FLVS) provides multiple solutions to help keep your child’s educational needs on track, not only during the current pandemic, but after as well.

What is FLVS Flex?

FLVS Flex is a flexible option that allows Florida students to enroll in individual online courses. 

Enrollment is open year-round, so students can start and finish a course whenever they want. When enrolling in a course with FLVS Flex, your child’s school of record can remain their current school and the school counselor will approve courses. If your child is homeschooled, records are maintained by the parent and the parent approves the courses.

FLVS Full Time is the school of record and takes care of all of these responsibilities for you.

    I will like to do FLVS over the summer for me to get a better grade and a better score and a better credit for me to graduate high school to get my diploma so i could be someone in my life tomorrow.


      Hi Emily! You will still be able to move quickly with FLVS Full Time, but the calendar is based on the traditional school year. Everyone starts in the fall, begins the second semester of their courses in January, and wraps up the school year in May. With FLVS Flex, you can start and finish anytime.

      Hi Ariel. Yes, students who fulfill graduation requirements will earn a diploma from their school of record. If you need more advice, we recommend reaching out to a guidance counselor at your school or FLVS!
