We offer an optional academic program to support student success and to help parents document their children's coursework. Under this program, we will permanently maintain transcripts for coursework documented through homeschool portfolios, accredited homeschool programs, and other schools, and students whose curriculum includes the four core subject areas will be awarded a Certificate of Completion at the end of the school year. Students may be enrolled or transferred into our Academic Program at any time.
If your child's coursework is documented through homeschool portfolios or accredited homeschool programs, then academic progress must be validated via a portfolio review.
For students to receive a Certificate of Completion, their curriculum must include the following core subject areas:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
We encourage you to include computer science, physical education, and visual/performing arts in your child's course of study. Career and education planning is recommended for middle grades.
We recommend you keep a portfolio containing a chronological log of activities, a detailed list of books and resources used, samples of your child's work, projects, test results, and earned certificates. For books, textbooks, and workbooks, keep copies of the title page and table of contents. For online curriculum, keep copies of the course's scope and sequence and printouts of your child's progress, grades, and time logs. For extracurricular activities, consider keeping programs, brochures, photos, and anything else that documents your child's learning experience. You do not need to provide this information to us.
If your child's coursework is documented through homeschool portfolios or accredited homeschool programs, then you will need to provide detailed curriculum information and a brief narrative summary of your child's performance in each course. Include your child's transcripts for coursework completed at other schools. You do not need to provide FLVS Flex transcripts. If your child will be transferring into our diploma program, high school credits need to be documented more thoroughly. Please see Documenting High School Coursework for more information.
Please download our Annual Progress Reporting packet for the required forms. Instructions are included. You will need to arrange to have your child's portfolio reviewed by a Florida certified teacher. Please submit the signed Progress Report and Progress Evaluation forms and any transcripts (except FLVS Flex) with your child's attendance record. If all your child's coursework is documented on FLVS transcripts and is at or above your child's grade level, then you do not need to report your child's progress.
If your child will be earning credits through FLVS, you may obtain transcripts via their website.
The acceptance of transcripts from private schools is subject to the requirements of the receiving institution.
