Why Choose Us


We are the highest academically performing cyber charter school in Pennsylvania based on standardized test scores and our graduation rates.


We operate on an asynchronous schedule, which means you choose when and where you complete your school work. Jobs, sports, music, and internships are all possible when you create your own academic schedule!


21CCCS utilizes the latest technologies and tools for learning. At no extra cost, we will mail your child the hardware and software necessary to participate in our curriculum.

Learning Coach

Each student is assigned to a learning coach, who will guide and mentor students as they progress through each class. Communication occurs regularly between students, parents, and learning coaches, to ensure academic success.

Opportunities to Socialize

We host several events during the school year throughout Pennsylvania, offering students time to socialize with their peers and teachers. These are our ‘Community Outreach Events‘ and ‘Field Trips.’

Individualized Attention

Most communications between the 21CCCS community and its learners occur on a one-on-one basis. This means students get the attention they need when they need it. Teachers and coaches are available in our Virtual Office space 56 hours per week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays.


All cyber charter school students are eligible to participate in after-school sports and activities offered by their home school district. Activities must occur after normal school hours.

Graduation Experience

Each graduate is invited to participate in our graduation ceremony, held in June of each year. This is an opportunity for friends, family, faculty, and staff to come together and celebrate the culmination of your hard work!


Customizable curriculum at 21CCCS means individualized education. Because the curriculum for all of our core classes, and some of our electives, is written and developed by our staff, we can make adjustments and accommodations to suit the needs of unique learners, helping them to reach their full potential.
