A unique learning experience
The School District of Lancaster’s Cyber Program is designed as an online learning experience to provide students and families with a unique educational opportunity who are actively enrolled within the district. This cyber program is part of the Lancaster Lebanon Virtual Solutions (LLVS) IU 13 consortium with other local districts in collaboration with Capital Area Online Learning Association (CAOLA) statewide. Academic advisors and staff work together with parents/guardians as an educational team to ensure cyber students are receiving opportunities for successful learning of content while meeting grade level requirements and graduation requirements grades 6th through 12th.
Parents/students interested in possible participation in the cyber program should contact the student’s school counselor to discuss interest and complete an application. Students who are not active within the district must first complete the district’s enrollment process.
Please be advised that submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance into the cyber program. An interview meeting is required. Students must continue to attend school daily until a decision is made regarding approval.
