As the 2021-22 school year comes to an end, Kindergarten – 12th grade students can now enroll in Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Full Time for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. The enrollment deadline is July 15, giving families the time they need to make the decision that works best for them. With FLVS Full Time, students experience the structure of a 180-day school year with the flexibility of online learning, take six courses per semester, and earn their diploma upon meeting graduation requirements. Alternatively, students looking to incorporate one or more individual online courses as part of their education plan for the upcoming school year can enroll in FLVS Flex year-round.
After more than two years of the pandemic, thousands more students and parents have seen the benefits of online learning, including better and more communication between parents and teachers, comprehensive and engaging courses, an individualized experience that allows for more meaningful one-on-one time between students and teachers, flexibility as to where, when, and how students learn, and more.
In fact, the FLVS Full Time student count has nearly doubled over the past two years – from 5,770 student completions in the 2019-20 school year to more than 10,500 students expected to complete this year. Plus, this year’s FLVS Full Time graduating class is the largest ever – with a total of 1,345 students.
“For more than 20 years I’ve seen the positive impact of online learning, and now that families gleaned greater insight into their kids’ learning by virtue of being at home together, they’re seeing the benefits too,” said Robin Winder, Senior Director of Instruction for Florida Virtual School. “It’s exciting to see that enrollment has stayed relatively the same over the past two years for our full-time school because it shows that what we’re doing is making a difference in the lives of students and families.”
Florida Virtual School offers full-time and part-time flexible options for grades Kindergarten-12. Students have access to more than 190 courses – including core, elective/specials, world languages, Advanced Placement, and Career and Technical Education courses – all tuition-free for Florida residents and taught by state-certified teachers using award-winning curriculum developed specifically for the online learning environment to facilitate student success. Plus, students can participate in more than 60 clubs from gardening, to coding, and more.
