Largo, FL (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Florida Virtual Academies (FLVA), an innovative online public charter school option for students in Florida, announced today that students in Broward, Duval, Osceola, Palm Beach and Pasco County are now able to register for the 2014/2015 school year. Enrollment is open for all those in grades K-9, with the exception of Osceola County which will be accepting students in grades K-11. With support from Florida-certified teachers and an active school community, FLVA provides the individualized learning tools students need to succeed.
To help parents and children learn more about the program, FLVA will host free community events and online information sessions throughout the year. Families can find more information on upcoming events and how to enroll by visiting: http://www.k12.com/flva.
Students who enroll at FLVA receive the award-winning academic program developed by K12 Inc., which includes engaging web-based lessons along with instructional materials – books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and resources – which are shipped directly to each student’s home. FLVA provides courses in English/Language Arts, Math, Science, History, Music and Art and World Languages such as Spanish, French, German and Chinese.
“The students who choose FLVA are those who want to play a more active role in their educational future,” said Patty Betoni, Head of School for Florida Virtual Academies. “While traditional schools may work well for some, we offer a more individualized approach that allows students to learn at the pace that works best for them. We’re truly a community at FLVA and we’re looking forward to welcoming others during enrollment.”
FLVA teachers provide instruction, guidance and support, and regularly interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. Teachers also organize numerous field trips and school activities where students have the opportunity to participate in events that blend academics and socialization.
Following the success and popularity of the online public charter school option, three additional counties are expected to add FLVA programs in the upcoming school year. For more information on FLVA, or to enroll for the 2014/2015 school year, please visit: http://www.k12.com/flva.
