Middle School

Grades 6 - 8

The world of learning has been turned upside down in recent years! Opportunities abound for kids that were not available just a few short years ago and the needs of families change weekly. As the world evolves, how kids learn must evolve with it if we are to prepare our children to face the future. 

In our Virtual Academy, online learning takes place in conjunction with a problem based learning approach to education. While students receive assistance from our Mentors, they complete online courses through their chosen virtual school. Students are then immersed in problem based learning and STEM, and incorporate collaboration and critical thinking to solve challenges! 

Our Mission: Provide your child with relevant, meaningful, and engaging experiences which integrate learning with real world experiences.

How Does Our Program Work?

Full Time

Part Time

Our Mentoring Lab is focused on helping your child navigate through their virtual curriculum world....answering questions about websites, sharing time management skills, keeping assignments organized, and helping to navigate their online world.

  • We offer the Virtual Mentoring Lab everyday, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

  • Each day we have a certified teacher available during those hours for mentoring.

  • Integrated into the day are mini lessons on real world topics, followed by problem based learning activities. 

  • Students work both individually and in teams to design solutions to problems and receive feedback.

  • Throughout the week students will spend half their time on virtual learning and half on problem solving.

  • Students will also participate in service learning projects, as well as exploratory topics of their choice.

Many students are enrolled in virtual programs and need part time assistance. They might have flexible schedules, involvement in brick and mortar electives like band, or prefer learning at home but need some occasional mentoring with an adult. 

  • We offer the Virtual Mentoring Lab everyday, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

  • Each day we have a certified teacher available during those hours for mentoring.

  • Part time students choose different blocks of time throughout the week to visit the virtual lab and work on their virtual curriculum.

  • Additionally, students working on non-virtual curriculum can utilize the lab for independent study.

  • Virtual Mentors can provide limited assistance with non-virtual curriculum, but cannot provide direction one to one instruction.

Is Virtual Learning For You?

Families Enjoy the Options!

Virtual School Mentoring

 More and more families are embracing online learning to meet the needs of their children! Virtual school enables your family flexibility of time, diverse options of courses, independent pace of learning, and a personalized approach to learning.


However, most parents lack the time and resources to ensure their children's needs are being met and they have a chance at online success. Our program:

  • Provides a dedicated time and space for your child to work in their Florida Virtual School program.

  • Provides your child with a certified teacher to oversee their progress and give support when help is needed.

  • Allows for flexibility of time within our daily schedule.
