Virtual Academy

IU9 facilitates a Virtual Academy for school districts within the intermediate unit that want to provide an online learning environment for their students. Districts participating in this program can offer students a full-time online experience while also retaining those students within the school district. Participating schools can also offer part-time opportunities for students to take core courses, enrichment courses, credit recovery courses, electives, or drivers theory online.

Virtual Academy Curriculum

The curriculum provided through the Virtual Academy program meets the same rigorous standards as courses offered in the traditional setting. Through our partnership with Waterfront Learning, a program at IU3 in Allegheny County, we can offer courses at lower rates than traditional online charter school rates.
