    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!

    So grateful I found this virtual academy. My children were struggling and way below grade level with the help of the teachers and staff my children have taken off and are finally at grade level and are enjoying learning.

    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!!!

    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.

    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!

    It is the best cause of the people and teachers. They are very nice and will help you if needed. The classes are pretty cool also very educational. You can make friend at the virtual school and do projects together.

    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

    This was our first year at FVA and we loved it! They are helpful creative and thorough. I enjoy the accountability the teachers and staff provide.

    The teachers are personable patient and knowledgeable. I love this school!!! Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a flexible and yet organized way to home school!!! Did I mention I love this school?

    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!

    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!

  • (12 months ago)

    I love this school so much! There is so much flexibility and so many involved students! I love going here and learning with the amazing and helpful teachers.

    Our family loves this school. The staff members are amazing. Also the atmosphere of the new building makes it fun for my kids when they do go to meet with their teachers.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    WHERE is the TEN STAR OPTION??? Falcon Virtual Academy is a fabulous opportunity!!! I am so thankful for this learning environment for my two children. They LOVE attending in school classes. The students are all involved in creating a fun supportive community! The staff is very involved and truly care about the students! It is a close knit family when it comes to FVA!! Thank you 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.

    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.
