Agora Cyber Charter School 2022
Elementary school principal Jansen Hornbake states, “Agora’s elementary program builds a strong foundation of skills as students transition from learning to read to reading to learn. The students develop a deep conceptual understanding of math skills that lay the groundwork to success in their later years of schooling.”
Students in kindergarten through grade two are assigned one teacher for all core subjects. However, in grades three to five, students work with a team of teachers who each teach a specific core subject. Agora elementary teachers use their talents to develop and execute engaging, academically challenging lessons to meet the diverse needs of the learners in the classroom.
Agora students enter middle school as children and leave as young adults. Bridget Kozar, middle school principal, states, “We help students become independent with their learning and take responsibility for their education, as they continue to find their unique strengths, and encourage them to flourish as they move toward high school.”
Students are offered a standards-based curriculum in four core content areas: history, science, math and ELA. In addition, students may have the opportunity to participate in teacher-led electives of music, art and physical education, and they are exposed to a career-readiness course as well as a computer-literacy course.
Agora’s credit-based high school program values a well-rounded individual and believes that students who study the arts as well as history, mathematics, science and language arts have the best chance to be competitive members of their community after graduation. In addition to the core subjects, students have the option of choosing from 80 electives, 19 AP courses and 14 honors courses—with 18 school counselors to guide them. Destinations Career Academy offers industry-relevant pathways in healthcare, business and information technology, and are complementary courses to the traditional high school program. “Whether it is a career pathway or college prep, we have courses that will guide students on their path to success,” explains high school principal Jeff Miller.
Agora Stands Alone
A rigorous curriculum is delivered to all Agora students in real time by PA-certified teachers. Live classroom instruction provides students with an engaging education, while allowing them to attend public school in the safety and comfort of their home.
Agora’s enrichment programs span all grades, with National Honor Society chapters available for grades four to 12. Agora’s student-driven programs and curriculums are designed to provide all students with the best educational options to meet their individual needs.
A total of 30% of Agora students have an IEP. Upon enrollment, a student’s IEP is immediately implemented. Following a review, a meeting with the family is conducted, and the IEP is adapted to cyber education.
Unique to Agora are 83 regionally located Family Coaches, who are the first point of contact to welcome families to Agora and online learning. They are the liaison between the school and the family, providing students an extra layer of support for a successful educational experience.
