Summer School Programs

Grades 7 through 12

PA Leadership Charter School provides students in grades 7 through 12 the opportunity to strengthen their cognitive skills, complete their academic year successfully, and keep their minds active through a variety of programs this summer.


All courses are housed within Moodle, which establishes pace and enables the use of familiar tools such as Moodle Messaging and the Lesson and Parent Overviews. PALCS teachers and academic advisors will support students as they progress through the summer programs.


The Summer Programs will run for 6 weeks: Monday, June 22 through Friday, July 31.


If you have any questions about the programs or eligibility, please contact your student's guidance counselor.
