Reach Cyber

Reach Cyber Logo Button

Reach Cyber Charter School’s mission is to help each student maximize his or her potential and meet the highest performance standards through a uniquely individualized learning program, through flexible pacing and 21st Century Learning, including STEM opportunities. At no other time did this mission come to the forefront than during the health pandemic of 2020.

Reach Cyber Charter School is more than a tuition-free K–12 online public school option for students throughout Pennsylvania. We’re a tight-knit school community offering an award-winning curriculum, STEM programming, caring teachers, and opportunities for parent involvement.

Informational sessions are held virtually at a minimum of once per week during May-August, and every 2-3 weeks during the school year. Please visit http://www.ReachCyberCharter.com and click “Find Out More” for a list of sessions. Parent-hosted sessions are offered frequently as well.

PROGRAM AND CURRICULUM BENEFITS

Reach Cyber’s curriculum is provided through Pearson Online and Blended Learning, the award-winning leader in curriculum.

Using our curriculum is not the only way our students learn. Every student who enrolls at Reach Cyber receives a “STEM in a Box” kit, the contents of which are used throughout the school year in courses all across the curriculum. Students are instructed in project-based learning, afacet of STEM focus. No other cyber school provides this for students. Over 40 of our day camps, our field trips, and our Back-to-School and End-of-Year events all are celebrated with STEM in mind.

Our Family Mentors are also a unique group of staff members who assist our enrolled families with required processes throughout the school year. These Family Mentors also hold “regionalized homerooms” for our students.

New in 2020-2021 – again, only at Reach Cyber – our Career Pathways program is exploding with interest, and will launch this fall. Students will be able to enroll in one of six career paths – completing courses, earning digital badges and skill sets – which will put them at the forefront of employment opportunities even before their college years. Microsoft Certification courses are also being made available. We are also beginning our Freshman Academy program, which is designed to assist students in eighth grade with the transition to high school.
