Flexible Learning Academy
Marion County School District has created a Flexible Learning Academy (formerly the Virtual Academy) program to serve students in grades 3-12.
Students will still be officially enrolled at their base school, but by participating in the Flexible Learning Academy, families are committing to the online learning format for the 2022-2023 school year.
However, if a family requests a transfer back to brick and mortar instruction before or at the semester break (January), we will work for a mid-year transition.
Students in the Flexible Learning Academy will follow a daily schedule from 8:00 AM until 3:00 P and will be taught by South Carolina certified teachers who meet specific virtual educator criteria. Edmentum, an online program, will be the source of instruction for students in grades 3-8 and will provide a live teacher for synchronous instruction. Students in grades 9-12 will have a live teacher from Success Academy utilizing the Edgenuity platform and in some cases Virtual SC to provide instruction based on their individual course needs. All students enrolled in the Flexible Learning Academy will be responsible for reporting on campus for district and state assessments.
A virtual program may be a good fit for students who simply enjoy the benefits of learning from home, while still having access to professionally certified instructors and a challenging, high-quality curriculum.
