Students enrolled at Aspiring Heights Academy are eligible to take elementary level courses under the FLVS Flex Elementary program (grades K–5) and middle and high school level courses under the FLVS Flex program (grades 6–12). Elementary students may take middle school level courses, and middle school students may take high school level courses if the courses are verified as appropriate. We are required to verify that courses are appropriate for a student based on his or her academic history, age, and grade level and that any applicable prerequisites have been completed.

How it Works
- Student or parent starts the sign up process. Be sure to select our county/school (see above). Students with existing accounts only need to change their physical school to Aspiring Heights Academy. See our FAQs for more information.
- Student or parent selects courses. Under FLVS Flex, private school students may select up to six courses at a time. (Selecting both segments in a two segment course counts as one course.) Under FLVS Flex Elementary, parents may select from specific "bundles." With the exception of Spanish, FLVS Flex Elementary courses are not available a la carte.
- Student or parent finishes creating an account.
- Parents set up a separate parent account. Optional; we recommend. Note: parent accounts are automatically created (or updated) when parents create new elementary student accounts.
- We verify the requested courses. We are required to verify that the selected courses are appropriate based on the student's academic history, age, and grade level, and that any applicable prerequisites have been met.
- Classrooms are assigned. This can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

A Note About End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments
Private school students are not required to take EOC assessments, however they may take them, if desired. Please read End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments for more information.
Public school students are required to pass EOC assessments in order to earn course credit and meet public high school graduation requirements. If your child may at some point enter or return to a public school, we highly recommend your child takes these tests.
Students who have not earned the required passing score on the Algebra 1 EOC Assessment may earn a comparative passing score on the respective section of the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) to meet public high school graduation requirements. (6A-1.094223)
