The School District of Philadelphia Virtual Academy (PVA) is a full-time, cost-free option for students residing within the School District of Philadelphia who will complete fifth grade by September 1 and are looking to pursue a quality online education for grades 6-12.


For SY 2014-15 PVA classes begin on September 8 and end on June 13th, with enrolled students receiving all of their school instruction in a virtual setting for the entire school year.


PVA students will receive a brand new Macbook Air laptop computer, rembursement for internet access and a Pennsylvania Department of Education-approved curriculum taught by state-certified, highly qualified teachers.


In addition, students will have access to drop-in learning centers for academic support, and the ability to participate in District athletics and extracurricular activities.


PVA offers an excellent online homeschool experience coupled with academic supports and opportunities for face-to-face interactions.

About the Chester County Intermediate Unit

The District will launch PVA through a partnership with Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU), a non-profit local education agency that currently provides free online school programs for students in 38 district-run virtual academies and has a proven record of success.


As a co-founder of the highest performing cyber school in Pennsylvania, CCIU has taken the lessons learned from creating and overseeing a top-performing cyber school to assist public school districts in establishing and operating their own online learning programs and virtual schools.
