Using innovative methods and technology, 21CCCS provides students with the tools and accommodations they need to pursue their own unique path to a successful future.

Enrolling in a cyber school like 21CCCS gives students and their families an opportunity to pursue an education that’s built around their specific needs.
21CCCS has been recognized as the highest performing cyber charter school in Pennsylvania for the third year in a row. Through a combination of PSSA scores, Keystone Exam scores, PSAT participation, SAT scores, and other academic performance measures, 21CCCS outperforms all other cyber schools in Pennsylvania. 21CCCS has also been ranked in the top 5% of high schools in Pennsylvania for their SAT scores. In 2016, 21CCCS achieved the highest School Performance Profile (SPP) among cyber institutions throughout Pennsylvania. In addition to general classes, students have the opportunity to enroll in AP and honors courses which expand on the enrichment of their current studies. 21CCCS strives to keep school interactive with weekly live classes. These engaging classes include chat rooms, microphone-enabled speaking tools, and video conferencing to facilitate communication between students, their classmates and teachers.
The curriculum at 21CCCS is flexible and can be adjusted to meet each child’s unique learning style and pace. In addition, students have the opportunity to choose when and where they complete their school work. This allows time for other activities including sports, jobs, and performing arts. Student athletes, musicians, and actors and actresses have benefited both academically and professionally because of 21CCCS’s flexibility and willingness to accommodate their rigorous extracurricular schedule.
At 21CCCS, students are top priority. 21CCCS provides a focused, quality education to every student through individualized curriculum and exciting technology. Students have access to vital one-on-one interaction with their academic advisors, teachers, and school counselors. Every student enrolled at 21CCCS is assigned to an Academic Advisor to help students and parents adjust to cyber learning, schedule their week, and find success. This assistance is not just available from 8am to 3pm. 21CCCS offers extended teacher and Academic Advisor hours for timely assistance. Students have access to their teachers and advisors approximately 56 hours a week.
21CCCS provides a focused, high quality and rigorous education to every student through individualized curriculums and exciting technology. This past fall, 21CCCS launched new technology courses for middle school students, in partnership with Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Gateway Program. These PLTW classes cover topics that are interesting and relevant, such as computer science and engineering, programming, app creation and design and modeling. These hands-on classes feature 10-units and are designed to increase problem-solving, creative thinking, and technological skills. 21CCCS is the first and only cyber charter school in the state of Pennsylvania to partner with Project Lead the Way.
