In March, PALCS students in grades 6-8 were invited to PA Leadership’s main office to participate in a CSI lab event.
On Friday, February 16, 2018, over 200 members of the PALCS community gathered at the Carnegie Museum of Art & Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA. All students in grades K-12 were invited, along with their families and friends, joined by teachers and staff, for a free day of educational fun at the connected museums of Natural History and Art. The event ran from 10 am - 12 pm, though families were invited to stay the duration of the day.
The PALCS University Scholars Program offers students the opportunity to join a long list of student activity groups. Such groups include: the Mock Trial Team, Moot Court Team, Academic Team, Drama Activity Group, The Algorythms: USP’s A Capella Group, and many more. These activity groups not only kicked off 2017 with victories and triumphs, but are ending 2017 in the same way!
We hope as you are settling into the new school year, you are looking forward to the wonderful activities and field trips we have planned this year! As a cyber school, many think that the importance of socialization just goes out the window, but here at PALCS, we make it a priority! We encourage all students and PALCS families to take advantage of as many as they can!
This summer, during the last two weeks in June, PALCS held the 2017 STEM Camp at the Advanced Ideas Center (AIC) in West Chester, PA.

Students in grades 6-8 were invited to participate in the camp, which took place from June 19th to June 30th.
12th grade PALCS University Scholars Program student Ralph Lawton won 2nd place overall in Biomedical Sciences at the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) held from May 9-13, 2016 in Arizona. This was Ralph’s 3rd time competing at the weeklong science competition, and as a part of his 2nd place award, for his outstanding project, MIT will be naming an asteroid after him!
