PA Leadership is proud to report that 40% of PALCS Faculty and Leadership have been a part of the community for 5 or more years.
Spring break is here! PALCS spring break takes place from Monday, April 10th - Monday, April 17th. Whether you are traveling, catching up on your favorite TV show or making sure get as much sleep as you can, remember the 3 important R’s: relax, rejuvenate and reflect on the school year thus far.
Here at PALCS, students enroll from all around the state for many different reasons. Getting the chance to speak to students and their families to learn their stories is one of the great joys of being a state-wide cyber charter school. We recently had the chance to speak to parent Colleen Ellison, who has two students enrolled here at PALCS. The Ellison family lives in Allegheny County and frequently visitsthe PALCS Western Regional Office located in Pittsburgh, PA.

The students of the PALCS Center for Performing and Fine Arts (CPFA) are proudly presenting sold-out performances of this year’s spring musical, the Student Edition of Sweeney Todd.
The Byler family has eight children, all of whom have attended PALCS at some point during their schooling. Five Bylers are PALCS graduates and an additional student remains with us as a senior this year. We recently had the chance to speak to the Byler family about their students, what they are doing now, and how school choice and cyber school impacted their family.

If you are in need of a change for the current school year then it is not too late, but time is running out, so act NOW! PALCS is still open for enrollment for the current 2016-2017 school year for grades K-11, but not for long!
Grades K-8 are scheduled to close on March 29, 2017 and grades 9-11 will be closing May 1, 2017. This means that in order to be eligible to enroll for the current school year, all paperwork, documents, and an on-site orientation must be completed before the above dates. Looking for a change? PALCS may have what you’re looking for.
The application and registration information is available on the Enroll page. Enrollment closings for the remaining grades are quickly approaching, so do not miss out on joining the PALCS community!
