Student Clubs FAQs

All of the meetings are online through Blackboard Collaborate, the same system you use for your live lessons and collaborations. We can use the microphone, chat box, interactive white board, and video to participate!

Sometimes! When our clubs compete, they meet in person. Other club meetings and events (including guest speakers, games, and other fun activities) are usually held online.

Yes, you must be active in at least one FLVS course to join a club.

We request that only FLVS club members attend meetings. You should tell them about FLVS and how awesome we are!

Our sponsors are teachers first and club sponsors second. You may have hit them during a busy time, so if you haven’t received any emails to the address you provided in your application, please reach out to the sponsor directly.

Various times! You’ll need to check with the club sponsor for the meeting date and time of the club you wish to join. Club meetings are very important for you to be involved in a club. If you are unable to attend meetings, let your club sponsor know!

We like to keep our records updated. Also, sometimes you find you’re not interested in the same clubs from year to year. This is the easiest way for us to keep up with all of your choices to provide you the best experience possible!

Please fill out the “Student Image and Name Opt-Out Form” in the Student and Parent Handbook. To find the most current version of the Handbook, look at the Quick Links on your Student Dashboard.

All of our clubs must have an academic basis. We cannot have any clubs that are religious, political, or support in nature due to our school accreditation.

All of our clubs have websites that can help you stay on top of all that is going on with your club! Make sure you get that URL in your first meeting to stay involved!
Yes. Once you meet the requirements for the honor society you are a part of, you will be given or allowed to purchase graduation regalia.
Unfortunately, FLVS clubs are only for grades 6-12. Our elementary program offers unique social opportunities depending on what program you are in (Flex or Full Time). We look forward to you joining when you get a bit older!
Most of our clubs are available to you! Honor societies are for high school students only though. Make sure you check the club information page for grade level postings.
Run for office! Elections are held for many of our clubs in the fall. Check your club to find out how to run. You must have been in the club for at least a year.
Absolutely. Our students are VERY competitive and do an amazing job at competitions! We place in quite a few district, state, and national competitions.

You don't have to participate in competitions to be in a club, but we'd love to have you there! 
They’re so much fun! Kids are chatting with each other and sharing information. Sponsors help support the students to make sure the meeting keeps going on. Ideas are shared, plans are made, fun is had - it’s a great time! For the link to your club meeting room, look for your welcome letter! It should have all the information you need to access the meetings.
We want you to join only three clubs to begin with because they take up so much time. If after you get settled, you want to join more, we welcome you to fill out the application again to add more clubs.
Most of our clubs just require a computer with speakers; however, some require a microphone so you can speak. Those clubs are marked on the application and on the club information site.
Yes! You need to get the form from your local high school and send it to your counselor/administrator.
We welcome students to create and present their own sessions! However, if presenting isn’t your thing, you can always just attend and learn something new. Both options are very fun! Oh, and if you want to help us run the event as a moderator, join Student Ambassadors!
Free. Nada. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Just come and have fun with us!
This is a great way to check out FLVS and all that we have to offer each year! We will have students, counselors, teachers, and sponsors there to answer questions that you have about FLVS. Invite your friends!
Sure! Join our Student Ambassadors club and, when you are approved, you can sign up to help us moderate future events.
You can earn service hours by moderating sessions, helping teachers, participating in panels, or tutoring. The two clubs that specialize in this are Student Ambassadors and Peer Tutors. Also, our honor societies do service projects that will earn you hours! Please note that we cannot verify any hours completed without a FLVS staff member present.
News in a Click is an online newspaper, so new articles are added all the time! Keep your eye on the site! Virge, our literary magazine, is published twice a year - once in the fall and once in the spring. Our yearbook is available in the spring. Information will be posted on the website when it is available.
Each publication has different requirements for submission. Joining the staff of the yearbook and newspaper will get you involved in writing for these publications. If you’re interested in submitting to Virge Literary Magazine, please check the Virge page for more information.
Of course! Help out by joining the clubs for each of the publications if you’re interested!
