JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Florida Cyber Charter Academy (FLCCA), an online public charter school,
will celebrate the Class of 2019—the largest graduating class for FLCCA
to date—during a commencement ceremony on Friday, June 7th.
The in-person commencement will take place at the Church of the Son in
Many assume that attending an online public school like FLCCA means that
students miss out on “real” high school experiences, but this in-person
graduation proves quite the opposite. This year, FLCCA will graduate
more than 100 students.
The school’s amazing cohort of counselors help students apply for
college and help plan their career path. Part of this work means
supporting students in their pursuit of scholarships. During the
graduation ceremony, the FLCCA school community will celebrate all of
their students’ achievements and highlights—particularly those of
Destiny Leonard, Tyona Bowman, and Bethany Pierritz.
Destiny received a $74,000 Danforth Scholarship from Florida Southern
College. Tyona received $25,000 in scholarships, including a Merit Honor
Scholarship of $10,000. She also received a full ride to the Miami Ad
School’s Social Media 10-Week Bootcamp for Social Strategists and
Influencers. Bethany received a $17,000 scholarship from Wesleyan
University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
In a senior survey, the Class of 2019 reports acceptance to local
community and state colleges and universities—including Valencia
College, Pasco-Hernando State College, Palm Beach State College, Liberty
University, Miami Dade College, and Florida State University. This
year’s graduates plan to pursue a number of career paths, including:
pediatric nursing, biotechnology, the United States Armed Forces,
radiology, cosmetology, dental hygiene, graphic design, and music and
“Students and their families have worked so hard to reach this day. We
are so very proud of all of our graduates and the diversity of talent
and passion they will bring to the world that awaits them,” said Dr.
Sandra Anthony, head of school at FLCCA. “I am confident that the
personalized education they’ve received in online school has prepared
every FLCCA senior for post-graduation success.”
Students enroll in FLCCA for a number of reasons—some are looking to
escape the impact of bullying, some may have fallen academically off
track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional
brick-and-mortar classroom setting. FLCCA students access a robust
online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English
language arts, history, art and music and a host of electives, and
attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers.
“Seeing these graduates and hearing their stories makes me more
optimistic than ever about our shared future,” said FLCCA Graduation
Speaker and Florida Sen. Dennis Baxley. “I know every Floridian shares
my pride in everything they’ve accomplished.”
