How does FLVS Elementary differ from FLVS Full Time?
FLVS Full Time is a full-time online public school following the traditional school year. On the elementary level, FLVS partners with Connections Academy to offer Kindergarten through 5th grade. For these students, most curriculum content is provided in print and supplemented with online content. FLVS Full Time provides textbooks, lesson plans, and materials needed for a high-quality learning experience guided by a parent or learning coach at home. Teachers hold regular calls and online Live Lessons covering core grade level material and elective subject areas like Art and P.E. Learn more.
As a fully accredited public school with a 180-day academic calendar that runs from August to June, it requires students to fulfill all public school requirements, including state testing.
