FLVS is a public school choice providing middle and high school curriculum to Florida residents for FREE. All of our courses are fully on-line, and FLVS is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). Our courses meet the Sunshine Standards developed by the State of Florida, and all public institutions within Florida must provide Florida families the option to choose FLVS for courses.
FLVS core course curriculum has been approved by NCAA. Elective courses are not approved by NCAA as they are not part of their college entrance requirements.
FLVS Part Time does not currently grant a diploma.
Instead, credits are transferred back to the student's local school to count towards their graduation requirement. Home school students fulfill diploma requirements either through portfolios that often include national SAT I and II scores, or they use the services of an "umbrella school" that offers the diploma. Visit the Home School Legal Defense Assocation or our homeschooler informational page to learn more. New for the 2012-13 school year, FLVS now offers a diploma for students who graduate from the FLVS Full Time (FLVS FT) Program. For more information on that program, click here.
