What about Online Public Schools?

Choosing to homeschool is a big decision. Many times families feel overwhelmed with all the decisions and educational choices available. When this happens, a family may prefer to make the transition slowly by utilizing an online public schools as their curriculum provider.

Online public schools offer families the opportunity to venture into homeschooling while still having a third party oversee the structure, progress, curriculum, and scheduling.

Online public schools follow the state educational Common Core Standards. Students are required to follow the same material as their public school peers. There is considerable computer time involved and some classes/lectures have specific date/time schedules the student will need to adhere to.

Every family will need to decide if using an online public school option will work best for their family. Florida Virtual School (FLVS) is a free online public school option available to all home school, public, and private school students in Florida.

Students enrolled in Vitarete Academy can take advantage of middle and high school level courses offered through Florida Virtual School (FLVS).

For more information about FLVS and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, please see our FLVS FAQs.

Steps for Enrolling in FLVS:

To begin enrollment, our students will begin by choosing the Part-Time option and sign up as private school students. You will then choose our school, which students can find under the Palm Beach County School District.

  1. The student selects their courses (you may choose up to six (6) courses total) and then creates their student account (Please remember to choose our school during account setup).

    Visit Middle and High School Course List to learn about the courses offered to Florida students.

  2. The parent creates a parental account (While optional, it is highly recommended).

    Parents can visit Parent/Guardian Account to create an account and to monitor your child's account and courses.

    Once students complete the sign up, a Vitarete Academy Counselor approves the requested course (usually within 2 to 3 business days).

  3. Students will then be assigned to an FLVS classroom. Please be patient, as this process can take from a few days to a few weeks.
