Why Pirate eAcademy?

In 2020-21, HSSD offered an online program/virtual learning option for all students. K-6 students were part of an online program using Florida Virtual Schools and 7-12 students participated in virtual learning. As a result, some students found that this learning experience better met their educational needs and style compared to the in-person model.
