About Us

  • The State College Area School District started offering virtual learning opportunities to our students starting in the summer of 2011. The virtual school is an independent learning environment whose integrity is the main responsibility of the student. Any questions in regard to this integrity will be handled on an individual basis. All SCASD academic integrity policies also apply to courses taken in the virtual school.

    Virtual Flex Courses:
    The State College School District is offering a small selection of individual courses to State High students. The purpose of these courses is to increase the flexibility of scheduling for State High students. There is a cost associated with these course. Click here for more information.

    Virtual Academy:
    The State College Area School District began offering a full-time Virtual Academy for students in grades 9-12 at the beginning of the 2011-12 school year. Students enrolled in the academy will not be taking any classes at State High but will be eligible for extracurricular activities at State High. There is no cost for students enrolled in the Virtual Academy. Please call 231-1002 for more information.
