for up to four virtual middle and/or high school
courses if currently attending a Manatee County
School and up to six classes if home schooled.
This program is designed to meet virtually every
possible scenario for students and parents.
School of Manatee County is a student/parental
choice program for grades 6 through 12 students
whose primary residence is Manatee County,
Florida. This progressive choice program is
providing expanded educational services to a wider
student community for anywhere, anytime learning.
School of Manatee is a rigorous educational choice
which will ensure that your student receives a
“world class” instruction – all online. Each
course is written at or above grade level
standards which requires one to two hours of
focused study on a daily basis to complete within
the traditional semester time frame. eTech
courses engage students in real-life projects,
requiring the use of critical thinking,
problem-solving skills, and the ability to apply
the knowledge they have acquired.
Students in grades 6-12 who are enrolled in
private schools, charter schools and traditional
public schools may enroll in part time virtual
school. Homeschoolers may enroll part or fulltime.
