About FLVS Full Time

Looking for an exceptional virtual school in Florida? Students who attend FLVS Full Time have access to the quality instruction and learning materials they need to study successfully at home.

After almost a decade of independent experience, Florida Virtual School (FLVS) and Connections Academy joined forces in 2008 to become FLVS Full Time. In 2011, FLVS Full Time began accepting students for full-time enrollment directly as their school of record, serving full-time students as public school students.

Authorized by the Florida Department of Education

FLVS Full Time is a virtual school serving students in grades Kindergarten–12 that is designated as an approved provider by the Florida Department of Education and authorized by the Florida Legislature.

Students, parents and teachers share their thoughts on schedule flexibility, individualized learning approaches, teacher accessibility, student body, and socialization opportunities at FLVS Full Time.

The FLVS Full Time Experience

We share a common goal with parents: to ensure that students become productive, successful, and confident adults. FLVS Full Time helps students build on their individual strengths and interests in a setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community.

Below are a few of the driving forces behind this unique approach:

Free Education, Outstanding Curriculum

At FLVS Full Time, students receive a great public school education online at no charge. There are no materials fees and no tuition charges. Our virtual school classes meet and exceed all national and state standards while also integrating the best texts, materials, and resources available to create a curriculum that keeps students engaged in new and creative ways.

FLVS Full Time currently offers students the following online school options in Florida:

Kindergarten–5 Public School Students

A student who selects this school will be enrolled in FLVS Full Time as his or her school district of record.

Exceptional Online Teachers

Florida teachers are the foundation of the FLVS Full Time experience. They are talented, passionate, certified, and specially trained to excel in online teaching. Teachers are drawn to our online school because they care about kids and believe that personalized one-on-one instruction really works.

Individual Attention

Each and every student has unique abilities, and all students perform better when they receive individual attention in a nurturing learning environment. Teachers get to know the learning style, skills, and interests of each student so they can give every student the best opportunity to excel. This approach allows students to accelerate learning in areas of strength or receive extra attention in areas of weakness.

Parent-Supported Learning

When parents take an active role in education, students prosper. Parents can be closely involved in their student’s daily education. They’re able to see real progress every day and work with dedicated teachers to keep their students on track. Parents say this involvement is one of the most gratifying aspects of the  school.

Easy-to-Use Technology

The Connexus® learning management system lets students in grades Kindergarten–5 access a welcoming and collaborative learning experience anywhere they have an Internet connection. Parents love how easy it is to schedule lessons and access grades, too!

Socialization, Community, and Friendships

Learning online doesn’t mean learning alone. Even in a virtual setting, students meet regularly in online classroom sessions and have opportunities to share ideas, compare experiences, and have fun learning together. There are even chances to attend in-person gatherings, activities, and field trips. And the flexibility of the school allows plenty of opportunities for students to pursue and explore other extracurricular activities outside of FLVS Full Time or through FLVS Full Time clubs!
