Penn Hills Cyber Academy

About Penn Hills Cyber Academy:

The Penn Hills School District offers a traditional high school, middle school, and elementary setting; it also has an exciting opportunity for students interested in an online setting or blended model of learning.  The Penn Hills School District is currently partnering with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit & Waterfront Learning to offer Penn Hills students the opportunity to attend a full-time cyber program. Penn Hills Cyber Academy has opportunities for students in grades 7-12.  Enrollment is based on an agreement between the school district and the student’s family. This program offers children an opportunity to complete school work using online curricula at home, while allowing Cyber Academy students the opportunity to participate in activities sponsored by the district-including sports and extracurriculars.  Each Penn Hills Cyber Academy student who completes all program requirements will be awarded a Penn Hills High School diploma and will be eligible to participate in the Penn Hills High School commencement exercises with their peers.
