Florida Virtual School
Florida has led the way with groundbreaking legislation that makes online learning possible and fundable. The Florida Legislature initially funded the Florida Virtual School (FLVS) as a grant-based pilot project in 1997, pioneering Florida’s first Internet-based, public high school. The school has grown phenomenally, allowing students to learn at any time, any place, any path, and any pace.
