    The Pottsgrove School District offers a district-sponsored cyber school option to students grades 6-12. We are reaching out to all our families currently participating in or considering a cyber charter option. We believe that for some learners and their families a cyber option may make sense. Our goal is to bring families back to the school district because we believe that through our partnership with Brandywine Virtual Academy we can provide a more comprehensive program, more educational options and support services to students residing in our district currently attending or considering a remote cyber charter school.

    Check out some of the benefits of our cyber option:

    • Pottsgrove High School and Middle School outperform ALL cyber charter schools across the state according to the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile.
    • Our cyber program now offers both a traditional and a block schedule option.
    • Students in the Pottsgrove Virtual Academy program are Pottsgrove students and will have access to our libraries, guidance services, and all of the student activities that the Pottsgrove School District makes available to its traditional students.
    • Students will receive a laptop computer, high-speed Internet access, and a Pennsylvania Department of Education-approved curriculum taught by Pennsylvania-certified,highly-qualified teachers.**
    • The Pottsgrove School District ensures that the educational program and the curriculum meet the district’s and the PA Department of Education’s standards.
    • Pottsgrove's cyber students who successfully complete the Pottsgrove Virtual Academy program will receive a Pottsgrove High School diploma.
    • Blended learning options allow our students to take some courses at school and some courses online.
    Be cautious, however, as cyber education is not a good choice for everyone. Parents, considering a full time cyber option for your children?  It is a full time job. Please read this article.

    Our school counselors and administrators are available and happy answer questions and discuss honestly the challenges, limitations, and benefits of cyber education to assist you in making the best choice for your student.
