Dedicated Comprehensive Support

PA Virtual was the first cyber charter school to dedicate full-time Family Support Coordinators (FSCs) to each family for consistent one-on-one support throughout the school year. Your FSC is your first point of contact for non-academic concerns like attendance, school engagement, and outings. Your FSC is a trusted guide for you and your child as you explore and become acquainted with all aspects of the wonderful programs PA Virtual has to offer.

The PA Virtual Student Services Department received the Nicholas Cericola Memorial Award at the Family Involvement Conference for outstanding accomplishments in the area of family involvement. The department was also awarded the Award of Excellence in Student Services from the Pennsylvania Association of Pupil Services Administrators and the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
