WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Friendship Public Charter School Online (FPCSO), a full-time, online public charter school authorized by the Public Charter School Board, will celebrate its 2019 eighth-grade graduates during an in-person promotion ceremony on Tuesday, June 11th. The ceremony will take place at THEARC Black Box in Washington, DC.
Many assume that attending an online public school like FPCSO means that students miss out on “real” school experiences, but this in-person promotion ceremony proves quite the opposite.
This year, FPCSO will promote 17 students who will enter ninth grade after completing the 2018-2019 school year.
“Each and every day, we strive to awaken the power of learning in our students,” said FPCSO Head of School John “Tracy” Sloane. “We are so proud of our eighth graders and know they have the tools they need to succeed in high school and beyond.”
FPCSO is available tuition-free to students in grades K–8 who are residents of the District of Columbia. By combining personalized online instruction, hands-on curriculum and the support of highly qualified Washington, D.C. certified teachers, FPCSO helps students discover and reach their full potential.
Students who enroll at FPCSO follow an academic program that includes engaging online lessons coupled with age-appropriate instructional materials and hands-on tools and resources – all of which are shipped directly to each student’s home. The rigorous and engaging curriculum includes courses in language arts/English, math, science, history, world languages, art and music. Students can also choose to participate in dozens of extracurricular activities and clubs that cover a wide variety of interests.
Students enroll in FPCSO for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom setting.
Details of the promotion ceremony are as follows:
