Welcome to Freedomschoolers Academy
Enrollment is Open All Year
Start below to get answers to the most common questions:
WHAT IS FREEDOMSCHOOLERS ACADEMY?
Freedomschoolers Academy is a private school for Florida homeschooling families seeking an alternative to the Home Education Program (HEP) option managed by your school district. Our students are legally private school students although the method of schooling is home education. We are registered with the Florida Department of Education in the Private School Database under Flagler County, but enrollment is open to homeschoolers in all Florida counties. We offer a basic umbrella service FREE of charge.
WHAT DOES FREEDOMSCHOOLERS ACADEMY OFFER?
We offer Florida's homeschooling families the freedom to focus on their students rather than trying to demonstrate academic progress in a 3-ring binder to appease the broken and failing education system.
We also offer:
* diplomas and official transcripts to our high school graduates
* Teacher and Student IDs
WHAT ABOUT PORTFOLIOS AND ANNUAL REVIEWS?
There are no portfolios to keep, no annual portfolio reviews, no annual certifications of progress to be submitted, and no surprise HEP portfolio inspection demands. We do not provide curriculum, instruction, or academic counseling. Our students may but do not have to, use FLVS Flex.
No annual re-enrollment
Students are enrolled UNTIL a formal withdrawal form is received OR the student graduates.
what about attendance?
Florida law (F.S. 1011.60(2).) requires 180 days of school attendance for private school students. Since homeschooling is the method of education used by our families, every day is an opportunity for learning. As such, all Freedomschoolers Academy are in attendance 365 days per year. An attendance record is kept and updated for each student to reflect this UNTIL a formal withdrawal form is submitted for the student OR the student graduates from high school. Attendance reports are no longer submitted by parents.
IS FREEDOMSCHOOLERS ACADEMY A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL?
Freedomschoolers Academy is listed as a Religious (non-denominational) private school as an administrative statement of our Christian beliefs as content on this website as well as our social media outlets reflect those beliefs. We welcome all homeschooling students in Florida regardless of religious affiliation and we do not require a statement of faith for enrollment. There are no religious instruction requirements. However, all Freedomschoolers Academy interactions between enrolled students (and student's families) whether online or in person, need to be conducted in a family-friendly manner.
