This has all been very helpful and I am appreciative of all the discussion. We are in a similar situation. Our DD has a 3 hour round trip commute and trains about 25 hours a week. So while I really wish she had the opportunity to attend brick and mortar I just don't really see it. But given that we do have some luxury of time since she is only in 7th I thought we might be able to map out a potential path. Of course as we all know, plans change, its life lol. For us I think we are going to look at one of the sports academies in Florida or see if she attends our local high school for one or two periods before driving to practice and then the rest virtual.This is helpful info too. Just chiming in to say that my daughter is graduating 8th grade this year. We really wanted to send her to the high school her older sister attends, but there was just no way with our commute (about an hour each way) and the training schedule. My daughter is an honor roll student, but I would agree that attempting AP classes and the type of academic schedule my oldest daughter has maintained (non-gymnast) plus 20+ hours of gym and the commute would be near impossible for most kids. It was a hard decision, but we are sending her to a smaller high school that will allow her to take her foreign language online and everything else will be "in person." You are so right. There really is no "ideal" answer.
