Our Academy

We believe that it is in the best interest of most children to be completely immersed in our school culture by being present in our buildings day to day.  
However, we now offer solutions for those needing a more individualized, online approach.  

Supportive, Dynamic and Quality-Focused: A Cyber Program to Meet Your Student's Needs

The St. Marys Area School District has been educating students effectively for many years and knows what it takes for students to complete in the hyper-competitive quest for college and career whether learning in the conventional classroom or online.  It takes rigorous coursework coupled with a combination of live and prepared instructional support.

Our cyber school program is flexible and offers all the support parents and students need to tackle the demands of online learning to achieve their educational goals.  We expect the best from our students; that's why we offer effective support to promote their success.
