If you'd like to be more involved in your child's education, you can become a Learning Coach. A teacher will still be administering lessons and providing grades and feedback. But you will be there to help with scheduling, submitting assignment, and keeping your child on track.
Our state-certified teachers offer interactive learning for students. We administer a research-based curriculum that is well-rounded and uses state-of-the-art technology to meet the needs of each student. We want your child to have all of the support and educational services he or she needs to be successful. We also organize field trips and outings to help students develop outside of their virtual classroom—we understand that socialization is an important part a child's development. If you're looking for an online school near Allegheny County, you've come to the right spot.
Every child has unique learning needs. If your child is able to fly through their math lesson but has to slow down and focus on science, we can accommodate that in our model. We offer flexible scheduling that allows a student to work at his or her own pace. Additionally, if a child volunteers, plays sports, or works a part-time job, they can complete their schoolwork around their busy schedule.
Not only is online learning flexible and customizable, it is also very affordable. Parents don’t have to worry about transportation or boarding costs or packing a school lunch each day. Our cyber school in Allegheny County still offers a high-quality education as well as all the support services and resources that students and parents need.
