Notes From Our Principals

Hello, and welcome again to all of our students and parents of 21st Century Cyber Charter School! We are so excited to begin the 2020-2021 school year! As you know, we at 21CCCS pride ourselves with being one of the top performing cyber charter schools in PA, and want to continue to do so with all that is going on in the world around us.


We want to welcome all of our new students and families joining us for the first time and all returning students to our school! It is both a pleasure and an honor to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year.


We have been fortunate to have been able to add multiple new staff members in almost every department and teaching subject! Please say ‘hello’ to them and join us in welcoming them as we begin the school year.


We would also like to say a big ‘Thank you’ and ‘Welcome back’ to our hardworking staff, employees and support staff! After ending the 2019-2020 school year a bit ‘differently’ than we all assumed would happen, we are glad to be together again virtually and won’t let anything stop us from having another great school year. All together, we work hard to create 21CCCS a phenomenal learning experience for our students. Students & families remain our highest priority. Our goal is to provide an amazing learning environment that challenges and engages our students from start to finish in their education and in all ways possible.


To start 2020-2021 with your best foot forward, here are a few recommendations to help you be successful:


  1. The best way to be successful - Attend all classes and log into the virtual offices daily, use your progress bar to ensure you are staying on track with your work submissions each week, and check-in with your academic advisor regularly.

  2. Start off positive – Everything is starting new! New slate, new tasks, new assignments, new classes! Don’t let anything in your past get you down!

  3. Get involved early on – Don’t fall behind in your classes and then have to play ‘catch up’ - get ahead early and stay there, it will be a lot less stressful in the end!

  4. Introduce yourself early on – our teachers, school counselors, administration, and staff are here to help you and want to support you any way we can! Tell us about yourself. We want to hear about what makes you, you!


Thank you for joining 21CCCS for the 2020-2021 school year! We are looking forward to a great year!

Tech Talk

iPad Shipping

We recently started shipping devices to our students. As you may be aware with many schools choosing virtual options, technology orders may be backlogged through multiple vendors. At this time, we are shipping student materials without an iPad. Please do not be alarmed if you receive your materials absent the student iPad. We are waiting on our shipment of iPads to arrive at our school. We appreciate your patience as we work to make this school year the best!


Stay safe, and thank you!

iPad Place

Welcome to another great school year! I'm excited for you to get to work in your classes, meet your new classmates, and learn from your awesome teachers! We are thrilled that every 21CCCS student will now have an iPad this year. Make sure you check out the iPad Student User Guide available in the Apple Books app - this was written specifically for you as a 21CCCS student.
