Welcome to the Downingtown Cyber Academy
The Downingtown Cyber Academy offers fully-online and blended courses during the school year and in the summer.
DCA's online curriculum includes self-paced, robust classes using the latest instructional tools in a vibrant virtual classroom. Many of our courses are written by our Downingtown Area School District teachers and delivered through Schoology, our learning management system. Additional courses are supplemented through Edgenuity or Connections Learning by Pearson. PA-certified teachers skilled in online instruction help students master the skills they need to succeed—in today’s classroom and tomorrow’s workplace.
Prior to starting the program, the student, parents/guardians, and school counselor will meet to schedule a student for the mixture of face-to-face, blended and online courses that meet the student's individual needs.
The Downingtown Cyber Academy also offers children the chance to participate in our wide variety of award-winning activities, clubs, and after-school programs. Downingtown Cyber Academy students are still considered students in their local school and will receive a Downingtown High School Diploma.
The Downingtown Cyber Academy is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who reside within the Downingtown Area School District.
The Downingtown Cyber Academy aspires to achieve academic excellence through flexible educational experiences for students in the Downingtown Area School District. We hope to revolutionize education by blending traditional face-to-face classes with student-centered online content and open learning spaces.
