May we register and use Florida Virtual School while enrolled with HPA?

Frequently Asked Questions

YES! We have an affiliation agreement with Florida Virtual School. This means that students 6–12th grades enrolled in HPA may register and participate in the Florida Virtual School Flex Program free of charge*.

Elementary-aged students in grades K–5 may also participate in the Florida Virtual School Flex Program free of charge*. Please be aware that there are some differences in the requirements for the elementary program. Please visit for more information.

For middle and high school students residing out of State/Country, FLVS is also an option for you. The FLVS Global is available to you; however, there is a fee. Please visit for more information.

Please remember that FLVS is an option and is not required for enrollment. If you want to use this service, please click this link: Florida Virtual School.

When registering with FLVS, please do so as a private school student. After you choose Escambia County as your district, a drop-down box will open with a list of available schools; select Hillcrest Private Academy. If they require a student ID number, this is your student’s social security number. (You may need to add an x to the end of the ss#) Please allow up to 48hrs for us to approve your registration.

Please notify the school via instant message, text, contact form, or support ticket on your family account each time you register for classes through FLVS. FLVS will tell you they will inform us of your need for approval, but they do not.

*If your student receives ANY School Choice Scholarships, the fees for FLVS MUST be paid by you using the scholarship funds. FLVS will send you an invoice; if the invoice is not paid, the student’s FLVS courses will be dropped.

**Note: HPA is not affiliated with FLVS Connections Academy or K-12; these are public schools.
