Our virtual high school provides a rigorous educational opportunity with high accountability and performance standards.
Teachers make their lessons engaging by using discussion boards, podcasts, videos, webcams, web quests, group projects, and more. Teachers and students build relationships in and out of the classroom, and our students interact virtually, using tools such as microphones, webcams, and more.
Our program also provides many lessons in the classroom that students can apply to everyday life:
- Global Awareness
- Information and Communication Technology
- Problem Solving
- Time Management
- Personal Responsibility
These skills are integrated into the curriculum, with core content aligned to state standards.
A minimum of 21 credits are required to graduate and receive a diploma from PA Virtual Charter School, and all high school students are required to take a minimum of 5.25 credits each year. There are six 55-minute instructional periods per day, Monday - Thursday. Fridays are asynchronous for all students, and teachers hold office hours for questions or additional help.
To qualify for graduation, students must pass their Keystone exams. For more details on specific high school courses, check out our Curriculum by Grade page. We offer one of the best Pennsylvania cyber high schools nearby.
