Florida Online High School Program

Online education seems a natural fit for teens today. Current high school students have grown up with the Internet always being available to them, and they use that technology to connect with each other and share their interests every day. Giving them the opportunity to take advantage of a tuition-free virtual high school program can help high school students prepare for their next steps in life.

At Florida Connections Academy (FCA), we use an award-winning online high school curriculum that is developed to help guide each student to a more successful future. While English, math, social studies, and science are part of the core high school curriculum, FCA also has a variety of elective online high school classes that provide a great foundation for students’ next step, whether they choose to attend college or start a career.

Core and Elective Courses: Our core online high school courses cover all of Florida’s math, science, English, and social studies requirements. We also offer a variety of elective courses, including SAT and CAT prep, foreign languages, journalism, health and physical education, digital technology, and art history. On top of our core and elective courses, we offer higher level learning opportunities to help prepare our students for the next step in their education beyond high school. These include:

Online High School Experience in Florida

Student interaction has always been a critical part of the educational process. While most of our instruction supports learning anytime and anywhere there is an Internet connection, students also get to participate in a live online classroom through our LiveLesson technology. This technology is also used to turn in assignments and helps students track their own progress.
