How it Works
When students register with Flexi Online Academy, they will be registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education, Canada. Upon registration, students receive an OEN (Ontario Education Number) and a student file with Flexi Online Academy and the Ministry. This provides international students with the same privileges as students in the province of Ontario. They receive Progress Reports and certificates identifying their nomination to next grades until Grade 9.
Upon entering Grade 10, students can select one path for high school, either American High School, or Canadian High School:
- To obtain American High School Diploma (AHSD), students must study 22 Credit Hours through Grades 10-12. Studying for 3 years is not mandatory, since students study at least 22 Credit Hours will be studied successfully.
- For Canadian (Ontario) Secondary School Diploma, students have to pursue 30 Credits, 18 mandatory and 12 electives, from Grade 10 through Grade 12.
A student can register for the school at any time and work at his or her own pace. Each course contains instructional content that covers all the American Learning Standards and American curriculum expectations. Assignments and quizzes appear throughout the course content. Students submit their answers and written assignments online. There are interactive activities and multimedia elements throughout the content to engage students, provide opportunities to practice understanding, and differentiate instruction according to varied learning styles. The assignments are submitted via students’ accounts on our portal. Any tests or quizzes will be open-book, timed, and completed online. Once the course is finished, Flexi Online Academy will send official copies of the final report card to the student’s home address.
Teaching and Learning

- Assignments and assessment appear throughout the course content.
- There are interactive activities and multimedia elements throughout the content to engage students, provide opportunities to practice understanding, and differentiate instruction according to varied learning styles.
- The assignments are submitted via students’ accounts on our portal. Any tests or quizzes will be open-book, timed, and completed online.
- Our teachers will send weekly study plans to students on the portal. Those plans align with our general academic map.
- Students study the material and lessons identified on the weekly plans through our partner curriculum providers Discovery Education and NewPath Learning, and receive all questions, tests, etc. from the Standard-Based External Assessment partner, Edulastic, which are all integrated with our Portal.
- Students receive assessment reports by the end of every week. Those reports identify areas of weakness of students’ performance. Consequently, our system generates appointments (classes) for the students with relevant teachers for the next week.
- Both teachers and students receive appointment schedules by the end of every week for One-to-One or One-to-Group classes on our Virtual Classroom Tool available on the portal.
- Teachers enhance students learning collectively or individually by sending relevant material and resources to their accounts to help them enrich their learning after their virtual classes.
