The enrollment window for the St. Johns Virtual School (SJVS) Full-Time Program opened on April 9 and will close on July 10. To learn more about virtual options and apply to the program, please visit http://www-sjvs.stjohns.k12.fl.us/
The SJVS full-time program is a program of choice meaning that students must apply and meet very high standards for acceptance. SJVS offers a unique online program that provides students flexibility to learn on terms suited to their needs. A full-time virtual student is expected to complete a minimum of six courses per semester. Online students must be self-disciplined, self-motivated, responsible, and challenged by rigor. Parents and guardians must play an active role in monitoring their child’s progress and make sure their child maintains a regimented schedule.
While the full-time program does allow students to establish their own weekly schedule as to what day and time they complete schoolwork, students must achieve adequate weekly progress in order to continue with SJVS as a full-time option. Adequate weekly progress is defined as 6 percent completion per class per week. Students who fall behind in their weekly progress will be required to complete schoolwork at the SJVS office until they reach and maintain the proper pace. Students not able to maintain the proper pace will return to their zoned school.
SJVS has seen students reach extraordinary goals with teacher and family support through the full-time program. If you would like to learn more about the virtual program, do not hesitate to contact Michael Eisen, Program Coordinator, St. Johns Virtual School at [email protected].
