Because our cyber high school graduation pacing options are so flexible, Reach Cyber is ideal for students who:

  • Want a rigorous academic curriculum to prepare for college
  • Desire a broad selection of electives, Honors, and AP® courses
  • Wish to graduate early—or take a higher-than-usual number of credits per year
  • Require additional time during the fall and spring for competitive sports, performing arts, or other personal interests
  • Need a nontraditional schedule to accommodate travel, family obligations, work schedules, or health concerns
  • Appreciate the ability to learn from home or other locations outside a classroom
  • Would benefit from working at their own pace with more one-on-one attention
