Lee Virtual Instruction Program is a self-selecting, student/parental choice program for kindergarten through grade 12 students whose primary residence is Lee County, Florida.

The school was established in 2009 in order to provide students with high quality, full-time instruction in an online environment. LVIP provides part-time and full-time virtual school opportunities for grades 6-12. Additionally, they offer full-time virtual school for grades K-5.

This progressive choice program is providing expanded educational services to a wider student community for anywhere, anytime learning via Internet instruction along with traditional teaching materials. 

Their goal is for each student to receive quality, flexible, online learning options and to be successful in realizing their full potential through a virtual education experience.
