About SSA

Sunshine State Academy K-12 (SSA) is a non-traditional remote (correspondence/virtual) private school serving students in grades K-12. SSA serves as an umbrella or covering to homeschool families in Florida and offers services to families in most states and territories. We also provide year-round enrollment so that families can educate their children on the schedule that best suits their needs and lifestyle. We are listed in the Florida Department of Education's Directory of Private Schools. 


SSA not only prepares and empowers parents to take the lead in their students' education but also provides curriculum and services related to record keeping, enrollment verification, report cards, high school diplomas, and transcripts. With SSA, families can select their own curriculum once they are ready to take the lead or purchase curriculum through SSA. SSA can also provide direct assistance in student education through scheduling, grading, reading sessions, and end of year assessments. We also offer optional social and educational events and field trips, academic extracurricular activities, and other services to help families in their educational endeavor. 


Our mission is to provide an umbrella covering for Florida families so that parents may educate their children in a manner that best fits their goals and lifestyle. We hope to provide an opportunity for families to provide a stimulating and caring education program in their home that allows each student to reach their full potential by having the ability to learn in a way that best suits their ability and interests. Students enrolled in SSA can graduate from our program and receive a high school diploma. SSA also offers a modified high school diploma, a secondary education completion certificate, and an honors high school diploma. Our high school students can also participate in dual enrollment at various colleges and universities across the state! Our graduates are prepared for a variety of options after graduation with the ability to excel in life.


Sunshine State Academy K-12 admits students of any creed, race, color, national origin, religion, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities that are made available or offered to students enrolled at SSA. SSA is not affiliated with any religious or political group and our families do not need to sign any statement of faith. We believe that all families should be accepted entirely and that all students should be appreciated for who they are.

Sunshine State Academy K-12 was founded in July 2018. SSA is a Department of Education registered and recognized private school in the state of Florida (#5624). SSA is in compliance with Florida private school statutes. Enrollment in SSA legally meets the compulsory attendance laws of Florida. SSA is directed by Dr. Chrysalis Wright, a developmental psychologist, who is a mother of six and has homeschooled her children while working for over 15 years. Dr. Wright works full time in her field and is very active at the local and national level. It is not likely that you will find another umbrella school in Florida directed by a developmental psychologist. Our Administrative Office is located in Volusia County, Florida.
