The teachers and staff at our Reading, PA, online school understand the concerns about too much screen time being involved with virtual learning.

You may think enrolling your child in Reading, PA, online learning will limit their ability to play sports or join after-school clubs.

Whether your child has an interest in art, crafts, National Honor Society, chess, or video games — we’ve got it covered. You can check out a full list of our school clubs and activities here.

Because of their enrollment rules, physical public-school classrooms can get a bit overcrowded. So, it’s difficult for teachers to give each student face-to-face time. Meanwhile, PA Virtual is set up perfectly to give each student one-on-one time with their teachers. This allows our teaching staff to get to know our students better and create lessons that will fit their needs. Additionally, virtual students can focus in on their studies more, simply because there are less distractions around them. In a brick-and-mortar school, your child might have to deal with bullies, peer pressure, or gossip. In the virtual classroom that you’ve set up at home, your child can be themselves and grow confidence in their abilities as they learn and develop.
PA Virtual delivers instruction via synchronous and asynchronous classes. Students can attend live classes (synchronous) or work in a self-directed environment supervised by a dedicated teacher (asynchronous).
