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.
All Virtual Academy students graduate with their class and receive a State College diploma. As members of the district they have access to the activities and services of their assigned home building including:
- free tutoring services:
- zero period tutoring (high school)
- VIPs Tutoring Center
- Math Center (high school)
The 2022 PA Technology Student Association State Conference recently yielded success for the Park Forest Middle School and State High TSA chapters. Park Forest claimed eight first places while State High won six categories and had three students become state officers.
State High students recently took the top two spots in the annual Dream Learn Sales Pitch competition. Dream-Learn-Pitch is administered by the nonprofit Brighter Financial Services, which seeks “to provide K-12 students with economic, personal finance and entrepreneurship skills.”
State High students participated in the school’s first day-long Student Problem Identification & Resolution of Issues Together (School-SPIRIT) program, a long-standing initiative of the U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service.
