Our History

In 1999 the Intermediate Units of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties saw the need for a cyber school to serve their students, but they wanted to ensure that the school offered a high quality education. These IUs and their 64 member school districts formed our school in 2001. The four IU executive directors, along with two school district superintendents from each county and several parents, serve as our charter school board. Our board has a tremendous amount of experience in education, and its members take an active role in guiding our school.

Since our start, we have implemented a steady growth model, making sure to have the resources and staff available to meet the needs of each student. Today, we have over 1,000 children enrolled as full-time students. We continue to grow, offering open enrollment periods to students in grades six through twelve throughout the school year.

Board of Trustees

You may have heard that for-profit companies or educational management organizations run all cyber charter schools. This is not true. A school board composed of public educators (Intermediate Unit Directors and Public School Superintendents) and parents is responsible for governing 21CCCS. As a result, the decisions made by our board are always made in the best interest of our students’ educations.
