FVL does not offer the option for students to audit classes.

If the FVL class schedule allows for it, students are encouraged to retake a failed course during the regular school year at FVL. The grade earned in a retaken FVL class is usually substituted for the previous grade. The new grade is used thereafter in determining cumulative grade point average and class rank. A course may not be retaken if a C- or higher grade was previously earned.

Semester report cards are posted in the student’s Skyward portfolio and are mailed after semester grade processing is complete. All Term and Mid-Term progress reports throughout each semester are available online through FVL’s Skyward Family Access. GPA is recalculated after each semester.
