LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Pivot Charter School is a free online public school that is launching this fall for students, grades 6-12, in Lee County.

The innovative program combines an online curriculum that allows students to go at their own pace with individual instruction and small group tutoring at its Fort Myers facility. Typical students include students who are behind and need help catching up, kids who weren't a good fit for a traditional school setting, students who need a flexible schedule for sports or other commitments and high-achieving students looking for a wide range of advanced courses and the ability to progress at their own pace.

Pivot has scheduled information sessions for prospective students and parents August 4 at the school location
