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. All three campuses enjoy this programming either in person or through 100% live virtual sessions. Topics range but have included STEM, arts and theatre, history, and career exploration.
