Just as all learners are different, so too are the people who teach them and the circumstances in which learning takes place. Schuylkill County Online Learning (SCOL) offers Schuylkill County students significant opportunities and advantages that other cyber and charter schools cannot.
SCOL students remain enrolled in their home school district, which allows them to participate in the same school programs and activities as traditional classroom-based students. SCOL students can still enjoy field trips, sports, social events, including the prom, and other aspects of student life. Best of all, SCOL students earn a diploma from their home school district and graduate with their friends after they have completed their rigorous SCOL education.
A timely innovation from the Schuylkill Intermediate Unit (SIU), Schuylkill County Online Learning provides engaging, effective courses from several leading online education partners, as well as the vital personal and technical support that will equip learners of all ages for success. SIU serves as a single point of contact between students, home school districts, and online education providers, ensuring a seamless, rewarding experience at no cost to students.
Schuylkill Intermediate Unit offers the SCOL cyber option to school districts at a cost that is significantly lower than the prices charged by for-profit cyber schools. As a result, while students benefit from high-quality online learning with superior local support from SIU personnel, school districts and taxpayers enjoy substantial cost savings. Schuylkill Online Learning provides the best of both worlds: virtual learning and real-world cost effectiveness.
