What grades are offered at Florida Cyber Charter Academy (FLCCA)?
FLCCA offers full-time enrollment for grades K–12.
What subjects will my child study?
English/language, math, science, and history are core courses. There are also other courses and electives in the appropriate grade levels, such as art, health/PE, music, and world languages.
Does FLCCA provide textbooks and other instructional materials?
Yes. We provide textbooks and instructional materials. These books and materials are dependent on the student's grade level and the courses they're enrolled in. High school students receive fewer books and materials than elementary and middle school students.
Can my child work at their own pace?
The elementary program is self-paced and flexible within the parameters specified by state law. Middle school and high school students complete lessons in synchronous and asynchronous sessions and are expected to complete, quizzes, tests, and other assignments in a timely manner.
How much time do students spend on the computer?
We expect that students will spend no more than 15 to 30 percent of their school time on the computer in grades K–5, 50 to 70 percent in grades 6–8, and 80+ percent in grades 9–12. Students also do hands-on science experiments, read novels, and complete math problems that are done without the computer.
Do you provide curriculum for special needs children?
Depending on a child's Individualized Education Program, we can tailor learning to meet your student’s needs.

To discuss your child's needs with us, please contact our office and we'll put you in touch with our special education team.
Can you accommodate the accelerated learning needs of my advanced learner?
Yes. The program is flexible to meet children where they are in any given subject and take them where they want to go. We use the rigorous Stride K12 curriculum, which is well-suited to the needs of academically advanced students. Our teachers work directly with parents and students to ensure proper placement into the curriculum. High school students can take honors courses.
How do students interact socially?
Throughout the year, students will be invited to participate in school outings, field trips (e.g., to historical sites, museums, zoos), picnics, and other social events. In addition, local groups of students and parents can get together on their own. Students can also participate in school and Stride K12 online national clubs to connect with peers of like interests.
Will this program intrude into my home?
There are no home visits as part of the program and no other intrusions into your home.
What if my family is homeless?
