Vancouver Flex Academy is a school for motivated, hardworking students who will excel in a small, nontraditional environment. Flex Academy uses a blended learning model that combines online education with face-to-face instruction to prepare students for college, career and life. Students receive their own laptops to complete schoolwork five days per week. Instruction is divided between classes and independent online study with teacher supervision and support. Class schedules vary based on need and progress.
Students who will be in high school during the 2016-17 school year should apply online by Friday, March 4, 2016, at 4 p.m. PST. The program is free for accepted students, but an application is required.
Students who live within district boundaries will be given priority over students from other districts. Transportation is provided for in-district students to and from their neighborhood school to Flex.
