FLASH curricula is taught in co-ed setting, and introduces sexual orientation and gender identity definitions to students.  In this program, students are given in-class assignments to reflect upon their beliefs, attitudes, and values as it relates to issues of sexual behavior, sexual orientation, and gender identity. 

Although this curriculum seeks to promote a discussion of values, and appears to want to present itself as value-free, this curricula appears to encourage the development of a socially-constructed view of sexuality that stands in direct contrast to Christian values, as it promotes ways students can engage in various forms of sexual behavior, and decide their own sexual orientation.

Students are introduced to oral, vaginal, and anal sex practices along with information on sexual anatomy and anatomical functions of males and females.  Students are also taught about multiple forms of contraception and birth control, which includes emergency contraception being an option for birth control. The curriculum does not address the emotionally and psychologically damaging short and long-term consequences that this decision this can have upon an individual.
