After bad experiences with the traditional brick and mortar schools, my son finally found a school where he can really excel and overcome his learning difficulties. The teachers and administration really care about my son and make every effort to insure that he does not fall through the cracks. Falcon Virtual Academy is a God send in my son's education!

After a horrible experience with bullying at 2 different schools, we enrolled our daughter in FVA. We are pleased with the progress she has made, and there is absolutely no bullying here. The staff is wonderful and makes time to help students and parents who need it. The other students and parents are friendly and helpful. We especially appreciate the flexibility of online learning.

Wow- what a great school this is! The teachers are amazing! The online program is very well thought out - but don't expect to to be easy! The program is very challenging and requires a lot time and dedication from your child. It is set up very similar to online college. Another bonus is that my child gets to avoid all of the crazy kid drama that goes on in a traditional school.

We absolutely love falcon virtual academy!! It is the best of both worlds! We can learn and grow at our own pace, and have on going help from all of the wonderful teachers. The weekly percentage rate helps keep us on track. The advent program is allowing our children to be more creative out of the text book world. There absolute no bullying policy is fantastic. I could go on and on. . Thank you again for another wonderful year!! God Bless this school

My school is fantastic because kids can be kids. They don't have to worry about fitting in somewhere, because there is a place for everyone!

My school is the best I have ever been to. The teachers are connected to everything and everyone and they provide a safe environment for education. They have flexible schedules for everyone and they are open to many opinions. They provide a bunch of activities that are fun yet educational.

This school is by far the best school I have ever gone to. The teachers are nice and the people are friendly too. If I didn't go to this school it would have been a HUGE mistake. If you are thinking about putting your child into this school, DO IT!!!!! It is a great choice for both you and your child. It has helped me a lot and I've meet several new people. The reason I say this school is the best is because I went to 2 different schools before this one, A public and another homeschool group. Both were horrible, they didn't teach you anything and you were learning everything you did the year before. This school, its something new every week, and if you fail a test (try not to) you can retake that test until you get it right! You can com into the school for additional help and you can have face to face time with the teachers if needed. This school is AWESOME! I would SOOOOO recommend coming here if you are thinking about it. Its fun, helpful, and fits to your schedule.

We LOVE this school. Weve been using online schooling now for 3 yrs and struggled quite a bit in the beginning but then we found FVA and all our prayers had been answered!! We finally had the support we needed and teachers who truly love what they do and the kids they teach!! We are so impressed with the blended learning and recommend it to anyone considering to do online schooling! But online schooling is not the easy way out of homeschooling...it takes dedication to teaching your child and completing all the needed work...thankfully the curriculum is very well thought out and the teachers fill in any gaps that might come up! I love going in for iLearning to a place where my kids are known and loved....I just don't have any bad things to say about this school and their staff!!!

I think that Falcon Virtual is the almost perfect school. The teachers all care about us. Every time that something bad happens, the teachers handle it like true teachers should. Most of the kids here all are sweet and treat each other like actual people, even the younger ones. All in all, this school is a really good school. P.S. Also, the environment that the school puts you in is perfect!

Falcon Virtual has been great for us. I didn't want to homeschool my daughter because I was worried that I would miss something, with the k-12 program I no longer have to worry about that! My daughter is excelling. She moves fast through her classes and they allow us to get the next grade level when she is ready! The staff is very caring. My daughter has extreme food allergies and they take many precautions to make sure she is safe in the building. Oh and the overview says they are in D-2, but it is actually Falcon D-49.

First year with the school. Third year with the curriculum. Best part - the teachers! They go to infinity and beyond! My daughter loves the extra curricular courses where she gets to interact with the teachers and other students face to face. She loves the building because she says it does not look like an ordinary classroom, but like a place of excitement and fun!

Falcon Virtual Academy (FVA) has opened up a wealth of opportunities to both of my daughters. Neither is a good fit for a traditional public school due to health concerns. FVA allows my girls to focus on their schoolwork, while managing the critical social interactions missed in home schooling. My oldest daughter used to do everything to avoid going to school because she was ridiculed for being different. Now, it's a different story. She looks forward to opportunities to be at school because she's accepted and can be herself. It is an amazing transformation that has had a positive impact throughout our entire lives.

FVA has grown exponentially since its beginning and welcomes students to learn through various styles that suit their educational needs. The school has great opportunities and blended learning classes. Need to work on improving student teacher resources for advanced classes instead of relying on K-12 online instruction. Trimesters don't allow enough learning time for advanced courses or those students who are behind.

Great for students that need flexible schedules. For a "virtual" setting they also have class time as needed so students may also get face time with teachers. Teachers and staff are dedicated to giving all the students a good education.

This is the only school that I have ever worked at where teachers can make decisions based on what is best for kids, even if those decisions do not fit with a typical model. Teachers are encouraged to think outside the box in order to make learning more meaningful and relevant to the students. Furthermore, the students here are the most caring group of kids I have ever been around. Kids know that when they come into the building, they do not need to worry about being bullied. They can be themselves in an environment that does not just tolerate them, but accepts them for who they are.

FVA is amazing! The staff and administration is great to work with. As a teacher at the school, I enjoy every minute I get with my students. They are all great students who greatly care about each other. The students work hard and are engaged. The students enjoy our positive and inviting school environment. Students are allowed to engage in conversations and work on project based assignments. School is fun at FVA and students are typically not ready to go home at the end of their blended schooling day.

This school is AWESOME! No seriously! This has been the best ending to our youngest son's high school education! All personnel at Falcon Virtual Academy know our son by name. His grades improved as did his attitude to complete his homework. He attends tutoring, Blended classes and school activities every week. He can email his teachers at any time and they respond with assistance as needed. He was very shy but, FVA allowed him to reach out for help in a comfortable way which carried over to other areas of school and social life. His confidence has greatly increased. He even now tutors younger students in physics and assists the teacher with science experiments. He went from getting a D in chemistry in the previous school to totally understanding it and achieving an A at FVA. The right teachers who are excited and motivated to teach, really do matter! I wish I had more space to name everyone but, just know they are always looking out for your child and encouraging them to be the best person they can be. I believe he is ready for college. He is organized, able to meet deadlines and excited to learn! He has the technology know how to be successful at college!

The blended learning has been great for my son. I think it adds so much to the virtual schooling experience. Our 1st year was great and we are coming back even though we have to drive an almost 3 hours round trip to attend the blended learning.

This school is so wonderful. After years of being bullied at school by other students and teachers alike, my daughter started attending Falcon Virtual Academy. The change was wonderful. The staff kind and caring. The other students there were also very helpful and friendly. My daughter benefits not only by what she learns but by the opportunity to help others.

Don't let the name fool you! FVA is much more than a virtual school. They have an amazing staff who take the time to get to know each and every student personally, who individualize instruction for all students, offer concurrent enrollment opportunities and strive to challenge each and every student to the best of their abilities.

FVA is by far the best school I've ever been to. Since I started, I have a greater confidence in myself. I'm treated with respect by all the other students and teachers. At a regular brick and mordor school Id get made fun of for just about everything, but at FVA I can be myself and no one judges me. We accept everyone. The teachers know me and my piers on a personal level, and do whatever they can to show off our skills. They go out of their way to show that they care. Many of the teachers are like 2nd moms for me, and I know I can tell them anything. Every week I literally count down the days until I can go back to school. There's nothing I would change about it, and I'm very happy that I'm here.

Our children have attended Falcon Virtual Academy since it opened. We love the flexibility this school provides, and we love how committed the teachers and staff are in helping our kids succeed. One of our kids was really struggling, and the staff went above and beyond to find ways to help him. The staff and teachers are like family to us. We can't imagine sending our kids back to a brick and mortar school. We feel so much more involved with what and how they are learning - something that was lacking in other schools. This school offers the best of both worlds. We would highly recommend FVA to anyone!

FVA is -very simply put - incredible! My daughter has seen so much more success while attending FVA than any other time in her school career. She will be graduating in a couple of weeks, and we owe so much of it to the unbelievable staff at FVA. The staff genuinely cares for each student and they go far beyond what lies in their job duty in order to see a child succeed. I couldn't be happier that my daughter was blessed to be a part of FVA.

I cannot possibly say enough good things about Falcon Virtual Academy. The teachers are organized, patient, and knowledgable. They have guided my son through the best school experience of his life. My son was moved from Vista Ridge due to issues with bullying. My son has Aspergers Syndrome and for the very first time ever, he feels safe in a school. He has thrived, gained confidence, and now even has friends. I don't know what we would have done without FVA. I wouldn't hesitate to send my children there for another year.

The teachers & staff have fantastic communication with parents and students. The activities and enrichment programs are always fun and engaging. There is a true partnership between the teachers and the parents. We couldn't be happier with FVA!
