    My daughter is a current 7th grader at FLVS. She is an artist and will be launching her website this summer. She is interested in this class. What is the age/grade requirement for it? Thanks

      Hi Lisa! This is one of our high school courses, but available to middle school students if they are ready for the course material. The course does provides honors-level credit and fulfills a practical art requirement for high school graduation. The prerequisite is Digital Information Technology. Feel free to reach out to our counselors if you need more info:

    My son is very interested in this class. He is a Junior. My concern is he plans on getting a job late spring. May I ask what the average timeframe to finish this class is?

      Hi there! This is a 2-segment course that would traditionally span two semesters (32-36 weeks total). It’s possible to move more quickly, but that is the average pace. Your son can always discuss scheduling options with the teacher if he needs more flexibility!
