    Dear FAVE Community,  

    I hope this letter finds you well. The academy first started out as an idea back in October 2020 and has now formed into an instructional program that provides an alternative educational option for students seeking something different from the typical bell to bell school day. We are serving over 1400 students in grades 3-11 with rigorous, high quality digital instruction that also helps to mold our students into responsible digital citizens. We have a staff of over 80 professionals who are committed to providing each student at FAVE with a meaningful educational experience.  

    Though still young as an academy, FAVE has accomplished so much and changed the lives of so many. Through the rough times and the good times, we have weathered so many storms together. It is with great difficulty and a heavy heart that I inform you today that I have decided to separate from Fulton County Schools. My decision to separate by no means has to do with the work that we have accomplished or with the organization. In fact, it makes it that much more difficult to separate from building an innovative instructional program in such a forward-thinking district. However, after much soul searching, reflection, and discussion with my family, it is the best decision for me to make so that I may pursue other aspirations in life. I do not yet have a firm plan for my next steps, but I know that in my heart of hearts that I must have the time to pursue how else I can serve others in the field of education.  

    The time I have spent serving you, the FAVE families, faculty, staff, and community, I will cherish forever. In the role of supporting the community in developing and implementing this educational opportunity that will afford so many students a new and different way of learning has been one of the greatest honors in my career. I know that Fulton County Schools is committed to continue to innovate and to support FAVE as it becomes one of the shining beacons in online education.  

    Sincerely,  
    Dr. Vu

    Welcome to F.A.V.E.

    In December 2020, Fulton County Schools announced it is proposing a full-time, online school to add to the district’s portfolio of diverse educational opportunities.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has proven the success that students can achieve from remote learning due to its “anywhere/anytime” approach. Additionally, many families have indicated they want a permanent option for continuing their children’s education with this instructional model.

    When it launches in Fall 2021, the Fulton Academy of Virtual Excellence (or FAVE) will allow students in grades 3-11 to attend classes in a more flexible format outside of the traditional 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., face-to-face school day. Instruction will include a blend of live, online lessons (synchronous) and self-directed lessons (asynchronous) from Fulton County teachers. The main difference between FAVE and the online course offerings already provided is that students would enroll as full-time members of the online school's unique student body instead of continuing at their current school.

    Teachers and students will work remotely, and to be most successful, students need a special skillset for managing their time and schoolwork in an online environment. Parents and caregivers of elementary students will need to be active in helping their students develop the autonomy and skills for self-guided learning.

    FAVE will offer many of the same virtual classes already available to students – just without a physical building. The initial courses provided will meet graduation requirements for any student, and over time, the class offerings will grow and evolve. Enrollment is not available to 12th graders during the virtual school’s inaugural year; instead, seniors can use the virtual class offerings available through their currently enrolled school.
