To provide Pennsylvania public K-12 students a superior cyber charter option, continuously improving by using innovative technologies, well-rounded curricula, and individualized educational delivery in safe learning environments. PA Virtual seeks to equip our students with excellent academic education, social skills, and character development for their lives as productive 21st-century citizens.

Points Of Pride

PA Virtual provides options for both synchronous (live class) and asynchronous learning (tailored to a self-directed schedule overseen by PA-certified teachers) thus ensuring flexibility. PA Virtual maintains the highest graduation rate among cyber charter schools. Our career and college preparation initiatives encompass college exploration, internships, apprenticeships, job shadowing, and mentorship, fostering valuable opportunities. Additionally, PA Virtual achieved scores above the state average in previous years for the Keystone Proficient/Advanced English Language Arts/Literature and Science/Biology examinations.

Admissions Policy

PA Virtual Charter School is presently accepting eligible students in grades K-12 on a first-come, first-served basis. All students who reside in Pennsylvania are qualified for admission. Acceptance into the school is based on age, alongside the completion and submission of all enrollment documents. PA Virtual Charter School serves as a public educational institution accessible to Pennsylvania residents, upholding a non-discriminatory stance with regard to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, family income, national origin, or disability. In cases where students have faced expulsion from another school or are currently undergoing expulsion procedures due to concerns regarding personal safety or the safety of others, each instance will be assessed individually, and enrollment determinations will be carried out in strict accordance with Pennsylvania law and State Board of Education regulations.
