     FLVA, which has reached its enrollment cap for the 2007-2008 school
 year, uses the high quality and nationally-recognized learning program
 developed by K12 Inc., a leading national provider of curriculum and

 receive a high-quality, well-rounded education in their home, on the road
 or wherever learning needs to happen. All students are assigned to a
 state-certified teacher and receive an individualized learning program
 designed to meet their personal education needs. FLVA offers students an
 innovative, full-time public education option that includes a rigorous and
 comprehensive curriculum and academic services.
