  • What is the Virtual Academy?

    The State College Virtual Academy is the State College Area School District's comprehensive cyber school option.

    For the coming 20/21 school year this program will serve K through 12th grade. Details will be forthcoming. The Virtual Academy provides your student with all the benefits and opportunities of being a member of the State College Area School District and the flexibility to create a learning schedule that meets their needs.

    Benefits of SCASD Virtual Academy

    Courses are facilitated by a SCASD teacher to provide feedback and answer questions as your student works through courses at their own pace and at a time and place that suits them.

    • clubs
    • sports
