FLVS Courses for Rising 9th Graders
Counselors will follow the same procedure as in the past and approve rising 9th grade students for online courses after June 1st (end of May for private schools).  This is aligned with when students are completing 8th grade.  High school counselors are not the designated counselor while students are still in attendance at middle schools.  In the meantime, parents will need to contact the middle school counselor to verify courses.  Go to to create an account.
Reserve your spot to be an AP Proctor!
Over 3,500 Advanced Placement exams will be administered at Plant High School in May.  Parents have the opportunity to assist with proctoring exams.  It is a great way to help the school, in addition to seeing what the test environment is like.  Help spread the word!  Any adult can assist with proctoring.  Parents of students who are still in middle school can assist with this effort as well.  Click HERE to sign up.

PERT Study Resources
The Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) is Florida's customized common placement test. The purpose of the P.E.R.T. is to determine accurate course placement based on the student's skills and abilities. The P.E.R.T. is aligned with the Postsecondary Readiness Competencies identified by Florida faculty as necessary for success in entry-level college credit coursework. The P.E.R.T. assessment system includes Placement and Diagnostic tests in mathematics, reading and writing.
