The Cyber Academy at Armstrong School District is an initiative that began in the 2008-2009 school year. It gives children a blend of home-based learning combined with rich opportunities to participate in high school activities. This Cyber Academy opened for students who were in grades seven, eight, nine or ten starting in Fall, 2008. Currently the Cyber Academy offers courses for students in grades 7-12.  Armstrong School District teachers offer instruction in math, science, social studies, English, French and more.


Advantages:

 

  • The freedom for your child to learn when they like. Teachers may do occasional lessons in real time using online chat or Web conferencing, but mostly, the student sets his/her own schedule.

  • Most courses will be taught by Armstrong School District teachers.

  • Bi-weekly feedback on student progress, with opportunities for face-to-face meetings with teachers.

  • Opportunities to take dual-enrollment courses at Butler County Community College, California University of PA, Indiana University of PA or the University of Pittsburgh and get college credit, all while paying Armstrong School District's discounted tuition rate.

  • The opportunity to attend, in person, any Armstrong School District course offered in grades 7-12, in addition to your home-based education through the Cyber Academy. For example, your child could be driven to school to take art, family and consumer science, wood technology or any other elective offered at your nearest high school and would get school credit and classroom experiences while doing so.

  • An open invitation to participate in sports, band and any extracurricular activities, opening the door to the benefits of peer friendships and the valuable lessons of team experiences.

  • The convenience of PSSA and the Keystone Exams state testing at the district's four high schools. (No more driving to faraway test centers).

  • The option to take a myriad of electives offered through partner agencies such as Lincoln Interactive, Keystone National High School, and others. These include everything from macroeconomics to German to oceanography.

  • Eventual progression to an Armstrong School District diploma upon graduation.



Equipment is installed in your home by an Armstrong School District technician prior to the start of the school year.
