FLVS Full Time

What exactly does "full time" mean? Being enrolled as a student in Florida Virtual School Full Time (FLVS Full Time) means that FLVS is the school of record. Students take courses with FLVS, receive grades through FLVS, and graduate with a FLVS diploma.

Why choose FLVS Full Time? With FLVS Full Time, your student:

  • Takes courses for FREE, as long as your student is a Florida resident in any school district.
  • Takes a full-time, online, course load at home.
  • Does course work online, but maintains a traditional, 180-day school calendar and schedule.
  • Takes up to six courses per semester as a high school student.
  • Registers with FLVS as the school of record instead of as a homeschool student with your district—meaning FLVS Full Time manages the transcript and graduation requirements.
  • Will be a full-time online student and graduate with a diploma.

How does FLVS Full Time work?

Just like in traditional school, FLVS Full Time runs on a 180-day school calendar. Students take their courses on an August — June schedule and have a standard public school course load. Students enrolled in FLVS Full Time must also meet all the same public school requirements for attendance, graduation, and standardized test preparation.

The primary difference is that FLVS Full Time is all online. Each course has a real teacher that guides students through the course work, which is broken down into modules. Teachers are available via phone, text, email, and IM, Monday — Friday from 8 a.m. — 8 p.m. As your student works through the modules of the course, you both will connect with the teacher to take exams online and to participate in discussion-based assessments over the phone. And, of course, teachers are available anytime your student has a question as well.

*As a part time student at FLVS, you have a voice in deciding how you will work through your course. We call that "establishing pace." When you begin your FLVS experience, you collaborate with your teacher and make a commitment to your pace. For example, you can zoom through your course, never having to wait on the rest of the class. You can plan around your extracurricular activities, never needing to choose between Band and Calculus. You can plan ahead to slow down and take more time on topics that you find difficult, never again worrying about not 'getting' topics like genetics or the Pythagorean theorem. At the end of the day, "any pace" means your pace, as long as you are achieving, learning, and showing forward momentum weekly.

In order to be eligible to take a course, students need to meet one of these:

  • The student spent the prior year in a Florida public school and was reported for funding in the October and February FEFP surveys.
  • The student is a military dependent who moved to Florida within the last year.
  • The student was enrolled in district virtual instruction programs or Florida Virtual School’s full-time public school program the previous year.
  • The student has a sibling who is currently enrolled in a virtual instruction program and was also enrolled at the end of the previous year.
  • The student is eligible to enter kindergarten or first grade.

Please contact your child's school counselor to get more information on requirements and expectations.
