What is Virtual School (formerly known as FLEX)

Virtual School is part of Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS). Through this program, students can earn credits towards a high school diploma. Courses are aligned to FCPS Essential Curricula and represent a variety of merit, honors, and Advanced Placement options. Students should be self-motivated independent learners and they usually take one course at a time. Instructors are highly-qualified FCPS teachers with special training in working with students in a virtual setting. Family Partnership (FP) collaborates with Frederick County Virtual School. Through this collaboration, students that are enrolled in Virtual School classes that could also benefit from FP services are allowed to take their classes on-line in FP’s computer lab. Regular attendance at Family Partnership is required.
