The 21st Century Cyber Charter School (21CCCS) is a Pennsylvania chartered, diploma granting school serving students in grades 6 through 12. 21CCCS is based in Exton, Pennsylvania, and enrollment is open to all students in Pennsylvania.
The 21st Century Cyber Charter School's mission is to provide students, for whom an asynchronous environment is an appropriate educational setting, with an individualized learning program utilizing the latest information and communications technology. The basis for all learning plans is to maximize student achievement of the Pennsylvania Academic Standards while developing higher order thinking and complex problem-solving skills. 21st Century Cyber Charter School will assure that students master essential content and skills while preparing them for their future goals.
In 1999 the Intermediate Units of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties saw the need for a cyber school to serve their students, but they wanted to ensure that the school offered a high quality education. These IUs, and their 64 member school districts, formed the school in 2001. The four IU Executive Directors, along with two school district Superintendents from each county and one parent, serve as the charter school board. The 21CCCS Board has a tremendous amount of experience in education, and its members take an active role in guiding the school.
