Reach Cyber Charter School (Reach Cyber) students enjoy the flexibility of three flexible pacing options for high school graduation.

Three Flexible Graduation Pacing Options


Because Reach Cyber courses are offered throughout the year—during the fall, spring, and summer sessions—our online high school provides school students in Pennsylvania three flexible graduation pacing options for meeting state education standards.

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 Advanced Placement®* 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
