Student Support Services

The PA Virtual Family and Student Support Services Department works tirelessly to ensure your child reaches his or her full academic and social potential. We deliver support to each student and family while providing important resources to guide you through each level of your child’s academic career. In our Diamond Model of Partnership, students draw support from the Parent/Learning Coach, highly qualified PA-certified teachers, and our award-winning family support staff while using state-of-the-art-technology and the rich and rigorous K12 Inc. curriculum.

PA Virtual is proud of our award-winning Family and Student Support Services Department, which:

  • Guides families from enrollment to graduation
  • Offers guidance services, like counseling and college and career prep
  • Offers health screenings
  • Provides enrichment and academic support, like tutoring and small group skill sessions

Dedicated Comprehensive Support

PA Virtual was the first cyber charter school to dedicate full-time Family Support Coordinators (FSC’s) 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 and monthly 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.

We provide a wide array of programs and services, including Academic and Social Developmental support programs, Parental support programs, Pupil Health and Wellness support programs and Student Support programs.

The department is composed of 7 distinctive programs.
