Suwannee Virtual School is an online learning platform that enables students to assume responsibility for their own learning and includes a curriculum that addresses various learning styles. The courses offered are taught by highly qualified, full-time, and adjunct Suwannee County teachers with regular, online, and phone office hours. Students and parents/learning coaches are encouraged to speak with their teachers regularly to enhance their children's educational experience.

Suwannee Virtual School is a school of choice and offers a full-time program for students in grades K-12. Full-time SVS students are registered as public school students, take part in district and state testing, and have the opportunity to earn a standard Suwannee County diploma.

Because of the school’s unique nature, students must take primary responsibility for their own learning. Self-motivation, dedication to learning, and regular participation are essential. It is the student who determines his or her own level of success. Students can expect deadlines for their work and expect to work hard but at their own pace within the set guidelines. They'll use discussion boards, chat rooms, face-to-face sessions, and other communication tools to work with teachers and other students.

Part-time options are available for students enrolled in Suwannee Middle School, Suwannee High School, Branford High School, and Home Education. Before enrolling in a course, this option should be discussed with the school guidance counselor.

Our staff is committed to the success of all students. We offer opportunities for students to come to the lab for small group interventions in reading and math and offer help in all subject areas. Our strong team of experts works to individualize and create a personalized learning environment for each student.
If we can assist you or your child, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Your ideas and suggestions are always appreciated. We look forward to working with you.
