PA Leadership Charter School (PALCS) is a state-approved public cyber charter school for Pennsylvania students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Since 2004, PALCS has provided individualized online instruction with teacher curriculum created to its families. We currently serve over 3100 students state-wide.
PALCS students receive access to standards-aligned courses, taught by certified and highly qualified teachers. Teachers post engaging lessons, teach live virtual lessons, and help daily as students progress through the work. Support staff are available for guidance, technical help, and other student services.
We provide all the tools you need for cyber education. You’ll receive, on loan, a laptop computer and access to educational websites. Depending on what courses you take, you’ll also receive digital textbooks from many publishers, physical books, workbooks and kits as needed.
PALCS families connect across the state by taking part in online lessons, attending field trips and joining clubs and activities. You will also have access to several special programs for PALCS students. These programs encourage gifted and special education students, nurture performing and fine arts talents, and inspire young leaders. When you join our community, you become a part of our PALCS family!
