It is already mid-November and the holiday season is quickly approaching! It has been such an amazing year for PALCS so far, and we would like to reflect on all of the reasons we have to be thankful.

Our latest breaking news is that PALCS, for the first time in its 15 year history, has over 3,000 students currently enrolled students state-wide. This milestone was reached just this week, and is our largest student body ever. We would like to offer a sincere thank you to our PALCS community! We would be nothing without all of our amazing, passionate, and unique students, their supportive and dedicated families. We are so proud and thankful to have an amazing community and body of students who are full of talent and potential to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Next we would like to thank our amazing and hardworking PALCS employees, who work tirelessly to serve our students, and families, to make sure we are always meeting their needs. Our PALCS faculty and staff, which includes the administration, as well as our instructional and non-instructional staff, all make our school and unique programs possible. From our state-certified, teacher-created curriculum, our flexibility, and our wide range of classes and levels, we truly have a one-of-a-kind, individualized program to meet the needs of students of all learning capabilities. We, the PALCS employees, are so proud to see our students succeed and grow, and we are glad to work alongside over 280 talented, caring individuals.

Last but certainly not least, we would like to say how thankful we are for public education and the freedom of school choice. Although it is still a relatively new subject for some, school choice has been a topic of conversation for longer than the entire lifespan of a student in our senior class! It is important for families to be aware that they do have choices when it comes to education. The parents of over 3,000 students this year, and thousands more since 2004, have chosen a state-approved pubic school that offers students an interactive and innovative curriculum taught by highly qualified and state certified teachers: PA Leadership Charter School. We are thankful for all the supporters of our school, from the members of the board, to the passionate individuals who fight for school choice every day. We are appreciative of the ability to offer a quality, public education to children in the state of Pennsylvania.

We are thankful to serve our PALCS families: those who need extra support and those who need the freedom to thrive. Together, we share the title of the #1 best online school in Pennsylvania and #9 best online school in America. On behalf of everyone here at PALCS, we would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! We are forever grateful for your continued support!
