An Established Leader in Online Education

Florida Virtual School (FLVS) has been leading the way in Kindergarten-12 online education for more than 22 years. FLVS provides a robust, award-winning curriculum to public, private, charter, and homeschool families and school districts nationwide. Founded in 1997, FLVS, the district, and its schools are accredited by Cognia and offer supportive online learning to students both in Florida and around the world. 

Our Mission & Vision

Student-Centered Learning

FLVS is designed for students looking for high-quality education, unparalleled flexibility and support, an academic challenge, and ownership of their education in a safe, distraction-free learning environment. Students have a variety of tuition-free, flexible and full-time options to choose from and can enroll in either one or multiple courses. Students have convenient 24/7 online access to more than 190 courses – including NCAA-approved core, electives, world languages, career and technical education, honors, college prep, and Advanced Placement® – allowing them to study anytime and anywhere.


Florida Virtual School (the district and all of our individual schools) are accredited by Cognia and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). SACS CASI is an accrediting division of Cognia. Our courses meet all Florida Standards. In addition, our core course curriculum has been approved by the NCAA.

A Personalized Educational Experience

Through personalized instructional offerings, students can build an educational plan that fits their unique needs. Students receive live instruction and 1:1 support from Florida-certified teachers who have completed extensive professional development in online education. To round out the academic learning experience, students have the opportunity to participate in collaborative assignments and connect with classmates, teachers, and counselors through more than 55 student clubs and events. At FLVS, students interact through structured online programs, face-to-face field trips, participation in competitions and conferences, and nationally recognized Honor Society programs.

Employee Spotlights. Living Our Values.

Each month, FLVS recognizes two employees who embody our values. They keep students at the center of every decision they make and inspire those around them with their passion for individualized education. Whether a teacher or a staff member, they are a shining example of our culture in everything they do!
