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.
A program designed for families that want their children to do virtual learning yet value social interaction among peers, daily physical exercise, and assistance with care during the workday. We strive to provide an outlet for families to achieve all these goals in one place.

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

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.
