West Shore CAOLA is a district–level online learning model that is vastly superior to the lessons offered in cyber charter schools.
Based upon our student needs, the District’s program will allow the flexibility of both a cyber component as well as a traditional “bricks and mortar” format. Our program is tailored to meet the needs of individual students, providing the best of both worlds.
The West Shore School District will offer the same bundle of products and services that cyber charter schools offer free of charge (computers, live support from instructors, technical support and maintenance). Also offered will be several key advantages over other cyber charter schools such as:
- Students graduating from West Shore CAOLA will receive a diploma from the West Shore School District.
- Your student will participate in daily content presented by teachers certified by the state of Pennsylvania.
- Our online lessons utilize the latest forms of video–based instruction, educational multimedia, webquests, interactive reading exercises, and online teacher support.
- Our counselors will personally plan, with students, each semester in order to ensure every student is on track for a timely graduation.
- Both remedial and advanced courses are offered.
- The West Shore Cyber Learning Center is available to support students, on-site, in a face-to-face learning environment.
