Our credentialed teachers supervise students who choose a fully independent study education or a blended program with in-person instructional days during the week. Either learning option fosters a partnership between the school, teacher, parent, and student to support and ensure student learning. All students are provided exactly what they need academically or socially for their personal growth. This is the key to students making progress in their educational journey and what makes FPCS a unique school for families to choose for their students.
