Virtual Learning (FAVL)


Foundation Academy partners with families and the church to build a foundation for life through Christ-centered education. We understand that every student has a unique situation and may better excel in a flexible learning environment while still pursuing a solid foundation through the church and Christian-based curriculum. Foundation Academy Virtual Learning (FAVL) is a division of Foundation Academy providing families the flexibility to balance their priorities and values while pursuing Kingdom Education in a self-paced, digital learning environment outside of the conventional school schedule for grades six through twelve.

Best Fit for Virtual Learning

Students within the Foundation Academy Virtual Learning program are those looking to thrive academically and grow spiritually within a structured and academically rigorous environment. Students may work at their own pace but must complete courses by a designated end date set in partnership with the family and Foundation Academy.  Missionary families, elite-level student-athletes, or those with medical constraints may be among those interested in an asynchronous learning opportunity. Here are a few questions to consider when looking into the virtual learning program… 

Is my student a self-motivated learner?
Is my student a self-directed learner?
Has my student previously been successful in this content area?
Does my student possess the necessary technical skills, and have computer and internet access?


“We started FAVL due to the scheduling component.  Our daughter was in a competitive sport that required multiple hours of practice per day.  FAVL allowed us to keep up with the practices while still focusing on our academics.”

“Our family took advantage of the virtual academy to work at our own pace and still be part of the FA Family”

An unexpected plus for us out of this program were the competencies [our daughter] gained…organization skills, flexibility, accountability, communication skills, and her new-found ability to advocate for herself.   Our daughter is much more confident and self-reliant than she was at the start of the school year.”

“I learned how to communicate any questions I had and keep organized” 

“If your child has the ambition and desire to learn and ask questions, this program can teach them so much more than just what is on the syllabus. The skills [our child] has obtained go beyond the classroom and I am extremely proud of the growth this past year.”
