EXTON, PA — Insight Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School (Insight PA), an online public school serving students in grades K-12 throughout the state for the last 3 years, capped off their school year by celebrating the Class of 2020 in an online commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 13.
This year, Insight PA graduated over 80 students, many of whom have been enrolled at Insight PA since it opened its virtual doors in September 2017. Eight students graduated with a cumulative GPA above 3.5 and over 30 students have been accepted to a college or university. These schools include institutions of higher learning in Pennsylvania and beyond including, East Stroudsburg University, Penn State University, Holy Family University, and the University of Mississippi.
“We all know that school has changed dramatically because of the coronavirus, and it’s been a very challenging year for all Pennsylvania students,” Insight PA CEO, Eileen Cannistraci. “Normally, we look forward to giving our online students an in-person graduation, but, given the times, we are excited for the opportunity to do what’s right and celebrate with them online.”
Cambrie Kasler is the Valedictorian and is planning to take a gap year before beginning University in the fall of 2021. Scarlett Cullen is the Salutatorian and is attending Liberty University.
Students enroll in virtual school for a number of reasons, including those looking for a safer learning environment free from bullying, those looking to get back on track academically, or those looking for an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom setting.
Insight PA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects and a host of electives and attend live virtual classes every day taught by state-certified teachers.
