Why We Exist
As a public cyber charter school, we provide a welcoming environment for our students across Pennsylvania to learn and grow. Our teachers get to know each child, understand their needs, and individualize their learning experience to provide an outlet for success. We bring out the best in each student and each student brings out the best in us, too.
Our blended learning model combines teacher-led live learning experiences with asynchronous learning activities. Our teachers are dedicated to making sure that each student has what they need to succeed. Teaching matters to us and so do our students.
PA Distance is Where Teaching Still Matters.
To empower students to own their learning, grow, achieve, and succeed through the use of evidence-based, inclusive, and culturally responsive practices as we build positive relationships in our online environment with all students, families, and communities.
“Students need a partnership. They need a teacher to work with them in real time, as large groups, in small groups, and one-on-one sessions to ensure their learning needs are being met, and they are experiencing academic growth.“
“PA Distance is a community of educators and learners. To us, teaching is not just a job, it’s a craft. We continuously strive to be better teachers than we were the year prior. Stagnancy is short-lived. Routine isn’t routine.“
“I love that I am surrounded by highly trained staff that I can learn from, and that I do work each day that I am not only passionate about, but that makes a difference in student lives.“
“At PA Distance, we care about the students’ academic well-being. Not all students are the same, and we are willing to personalize their learning experience.“
