Why is PA Cyber a great experience for your family?

PA Cyber offered our kids a flexible schedule and opportunities that were not afforded to them in their previous schools. The playing field is level, creating an inclusive, supportive environment conducive to learning. Learning in this way has given our kids a chance to explore educational experiences not often found in a traditional classroom, and it has truly helped them grow as individuals. The school has helped each of them overcome hurdles and gain confidence while giving us more family time. PA Cyber helped shape our children into cultured, self-motivated, worldly people who are now better prepared for college and adulthood.  

How would PA Cyber be great for other parents?

PA Cyber is a great fit for parents who seek more family time, a more flexible schedule, or who find themselves frustrated by their child’s current education. The school offers a great deal of support for parents, and in our experience, values parents as equals. Parents are given a voice and work together with teachers, advisers, and administrators in a more conducive manner than in many other school settings. We’re all on the same team with the same goal. School puts a tremendous amount of pressure on parents, but it doesn’t have to be a constant battle. I think the next generation of parents see this and are willing to embrace new ways of learning. It’s an exciting time for education and school choice. Our biggest regret as parents is not coming to PA Cyber sooner.
