New Year's Resolutions: Take control of your education!

Alane Butler

Happy New Year from Achievement House Cyber Charter School! Make a resolution to take control of your education in 2017 and find out if cyber school is right for you! 

Younger generations are connected by technology every day – why not educate them the same way? As Malcom X said “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

Achievement House Cyber Charter School uses cutting-edge tools and online resources to create customized learning experiences for students across Pennsylvania – in the comfort of their own home. We believe we are providing that passport to the future through innovative and specialized tracks in entrepreneurship, computer science and the maker movement. All courses at AHCCS align fully with the standards set by the PA Department of Education and in the past year students have shown schoolwide double digit growth in PSSA and Keystone Exam scores.

Technology moves fast, and advancements in communication and transportation are prefect examples. Online education isn’t the future of education, it’s the present! Students receive laptops from the school which they use to log in and learn from anywhere – usually from the comfort of their own home. Most classes at AHCCS are live and interactive, but flexible scheduling makes cyber school a great option for students with special needs, those who work to support their family, or are those heavily involved in athletics or the community.

Cyber charter schools were formed based on the idea that unique ideas could be pioneer in a charter environment and then replicated in traditional districts. We see this with the integration of computers, iPads and other online resources in brick and mortar schools, but to be competitive in a 21st century job market, this generation of students needs to master or at least be familiar with emerging technologies. AHCCS teachers blend technology with every subject, giving them the tools they will need to be successful after graduation. 

So this year, break out of the boring classroom and find out what it’s like to make your own schedule and personalize your educational experience. The first step to taking control of your education and your future is to speak to an enrollment specialist at AHCCS today!
