Flex Academies ONE was the focus of a report by Whitney Turner on WHSV3 in Harrisonburg, Virginia this week. You can view the segment here.
On the station’s morning show, Turner said that Flex Academies is an established enrichment, before and aftercare provider for schools, but that when COVID-19 hit, the company began to offer online programs that are “scheduled, social and safe for children.” At Flex Academies ONE, the ONE stands for “online enrichment.”
Flex Academies CEO and Founder Joshua Chernikoff appeared in the report.
“This was built on working with PTAs, so we know a lot about safety. We have an Online Coordinator, who’s there for every single session,” he said.
Turner pointed out that there are many different kinds of enrichment sessions, including sports, cooking, yoga, improv, just to name a few.
Chernikoff talked about how the enrichment programs promote a love of learning among students.
He said, “They are so focused on the instructors, so focused on the learning, that when they get out – and I see this in my own 5 ½ year old daughter — she’s got more energy than when she started.”
Turner mentioned that Flex will be turning its attention to virtual summer camps for the coming months and directed viewers to the station’s website for additional information. You can also visit the Flex Academies ONE website to learn more.
