PA Leadership Charter School, the best online school in Pennsylvania, is now accepting applications in all grades K-12 for the 2021-2022 school year! Families interested in applying can get started on our enrollment page.

The Enrollment Process in Four Steps

  1. Start an application at
    Complete applications will be processed for enrollment on a first-come, first-served basis as long as attendance slots are available. The sooner you submit a complete application, the more easily your enrollment can be processed.
  2. Submit your additional documents
    Applications must be complete to move forward with enrollment: families must submit all forms on the website and must include additional documents. A list of required documents is available with the application, but can be previewed here (pdf).
  3. Schedule and attend an orientation
    The PALCS Admissions Department will contact you once your application forms are received and documents are processed. Your family will be scheduled for an in-person or online orientation in the upcoming months.
  4. Enroll!
    Students may be officially enrolled after successful completion of an orientation.

If more students apply to the school than the number of available attendance slots, a waiting list may be implemented. We would post advanced notice on should this occur. Enrollment is open and first-come, first-served at this time. We expect high interest in the PA Leadership Charter School for the 2021-2022 school year, so we recommend applying early!


For the fourth year in a row, PALCS has ranked as the #1 online school. In operation since 2004, PALCS offers a flexible, academically dynamic curriculum. Students residing in Pennsylvania in Kindergarten through 12th grade can enroll in PALCS.
