Distinctive Programs


FlexFriday includes time to make academics real, learn more about our community and culture, experience the arts, and learn from those in the FlexSchool community.
A cornerstone of the FlexSchool experience has always been FlexFriday – a weekly opportunity for students to apply their classroom learning to the real world through experiences such as field trips, service projects, science labs, hands-on activities and live interactions with professionals in the field. We are pleased to say that we continue to provide FlexFriday enrichment programming despite the Covid-19 crisis. When restrictions are in place, our FlexFriday options each week may include:

  • In-person option: An outdoor opportunity for students to connect in person for fun, hands-on, experiential learning activities, while practicing all safety protocols.
  • Virtual option: FlexSchool’s virtual speaker series features exciting activities such as live, guided tours, learning activities, speakers from a variety of fascinating professions and more!
