WHAT IS IT?
Virtual School @ G.USA
is not a private school or an educational institution. It is a day program that allows for children to come and have structured days with peers at Gymnastics USA. Included throughout the day is scheduled time for school work, gymnastics, game time, and lunch/snack. This is a structured option for families who do not want their child to be in a traditional school setting.
We recommend utilizing OCVS, these courses are taught virtually by local OCPS teachers. Our staff will be there to ensure the students are working on their schoolwork during the allocated times. However, the education and associated work will come from the learning program of the parent’s choice.

We recommend utilizing OCVS, these courses are taught virtually by local OCPS teachers. However, parents may decide on whatever system or program they would like their child to use. The purpose of G.USA in this program, is not to teach or tutor. Staff is there to ensure student discipline with regard to doing their work independently in the allocated time frames. They will provide minor assistance to ensure success for the student.
It is important to realize that the staff are not teachers or tutors. They will provide basic assistance as best possible to ensure student success, but student academic success is ultimately reliant on the virtual program they are taking, the student's merit, and parent oversight.
Parents are able to hire an outside Tutor or Therapist to come in
during the Virtual School day to meet with their child.
Groups will be small, ratios of 10 students per staff member for K-2nd grade and 15:01 for 3rd grade and above. Divisions of groups will be as follows:
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
3rd Grade - 5th Grade
6th Grade and Up
LAPTOP & OTHER SUPPLIES:
Students will be required to bring their own materials for their school work, including their own laptop, charger, headphones, etc as required for their learning program.

Students will set up their work stations at the start of each morning wherever they choose within the allocated areas. Many standard tables are available but students are also permitted to work in any style of seating they (and their parents) feel best for their comfort while working. Students are permitted to bring their own seating if they choose. Please learn more about Flex Seating here.

Our kids have participated in the summer camp 3 years in a row, and absolutely love it. It is a safe, clean and spacious place, filled with positive energy. I noticed a high rate of employee retention, which is an indication of how good the leadership team is. The coaches are excellent and connect with the kids, and the front desk is friendly and helpful. Virtual school is a new offering that we have taken advantage of this year. Keeping the kids at home would have been a constant battle, and going to Gymnastics USA eliminates distractions from home. It offers them the structure they need, a supportive learning environment, and some fun and exercise too. My kids look forward to the experience every day, and this was not my experience when we kept them home at the end of last school year.
My 2nd grade daughter did the first 10 days of virtual school at Gymnastics USA. They did a great job keeping her on task and on schedule. Kali kept in communication with me and helped my daughter with logging in and ensuring she was on time for her live instruction with her teacher. The staff at Gymnastics USA are all so friendly and helpful. My daughter was so nervous doing LaunchEd on her own without me, but Gymnastics USA made it easy and fun for her. My daughter starts face to face learning tomorrow, but if we have to do virtual again, I would most definitely send her to Gymnastics USA. I work, but even if I didn't, her having social interaction with others is important to me so I wouldn't think twice about signing her up again. Not only do they do a great job with virtual school, they also follow all of the safety procedures to prevent the spread of Covid and we always felt safe being there! Great job to all of the staff; I highly recommend!
