JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Students at Florida Virtual Academies (FLVA), a network of accredited, full-time, online public charter schools, will begin their 2015-2016 school year on August 24th.
"When you enroll in FLVA, you enroll in more than a school," said Karen Parker, the Head of School at Florida Virtual Academies "You join an education support system designed to give your children—in partnership with your family and a Florida certified teacher—the best education possible."
By combining individualized online instruction, hands-on curriculum and the support of highly qualified and state-certified Florida teachers, FLVA helps students discover their individual learning style. Students who enroll at FLVA follow an academic program that includes engaging web-based lessons along with age-appropriate instructional materials – books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and resources – which are shipped directly to each student's home. The rigorous and engaging curriculum includes courses in language arts/English, math, science, history, world languages, art and music. Students can also choose to participate in dozens of extracurricular activities and clubs that cover a wide variety of interests and can also participate in their school district's athletic programs.
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 opportunities. Teachers also organize numerous field trips and school activities where students have the option to participate in events that blend academics and socialization.
