A High-Quality Program
Customized for your Child

Student success is at the heart of every decision we make at our virtual elementary school. Your child’s team includes a principal, assistant principal, teachers, nurses, guidance counselors, family support coordinators, and more. The team works together to fine-tune an academic plan that meets your child where they are right now and challenges them but doesn’t overwhelm them.

We find opportunities for students to excel, and give them additional support where they struggle. We are one of the best elementary cyber schools in PA.

There is nothing better to put hard work into than your child and their education (video).

A Variety of Instructional Formats

At our online elementary school, we offer two instructional formats: synchronous and asynchronous. For families who prefer a more structured schedule as well as daily interaction with a PA-certified teacher and other students, we offer live (synchronous) classes held in a virtual classroom setting. For families that prefer more flexible schedules and independent learning, we offer self-directed (asynchronous) courses, supervised by a PA-certified teacher. In the asynchronous format, PA Virtual teachers plan the students' coursework, supervise their progress, and are available to support student needs daily. Learning Coaches work alongside their children in both formats.   

We work with you to provide the structure or flexibility that your child needs.

Our Full-Day Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten builds the foundation for every child’s education. Especially for parents of younger students, the flexibility of choosing either the synchronous or asynchronous model (see above) can help them plan a day that makes sense for their child. At PA Virtual, our kindergarteners flourish with our rich curriculum, dedicated teachers, and the active participation of their parents. Just like in your local school district, our kindergarteners have the same teacher for all subjects. We also provide all of the materials your child needs for the year, including curriculum and hands-on manipulatives to help excite creative and curious young learners.

Check out our Curriculum By Grade page for more information about the courses your child will explore in their first year. To ensure your child is eligible for kindergarten enrollment with PA Virtual, please check your local district's age requirement. You can also review our Kindergarten Readiness Checklist as you prepare your child for kindergarten. Contact us if you're wondering, "Are there local kindergarten cyber schools near me?"

Opportunities for Elementary Students

Hands-on learning for every student

Field Trips

Socialization is important, especially for our younger students. We offer regular outings across the state, and all grade levels are encouraged to attend. Students have many chances to meet families from their area and make some new friends doing things like exploring museums, celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday, visiting science centers, and much more.

Service Learning

PA Virtual believes in social enrichment, and has established community-based partnerships with local charities including food banks, homeless shelters, and donation centers. Our students across the state participate in school-wide service learning, including opportunities with the Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots, the Ugly Quilt Project, and more.

Kinesthetic Learning

Young children explore and learn with their hands. The curriculum we provide for elementary students includes a variety of items for hands-on learning. Shapes, counting cubes, scales, inflatable globes, paint, magnifying glasses… your child will have active hands for active learning!

Individualized Learning

PA Virtual students use Study Island and Exact Path, two tools that help our teachers determine a student’s individual academic needs. These programs provide lessons and activities to support academic growth and are personalized for your child’s learning path.
