Virtual Charter School Marks 1st Graduation
NORRISTOWN, PA - The Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School announced the graduation of the first high school class in the history of one of the first cyber charter schools established in Pennsylvania.
“There is an historic note to the achievement of the first graduates of the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School,” said Sheldon Thorpe, president of the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School Board of Trustees and a pioneer PAVCS parent enrolled since the school’s creation in 2001. “This graduation marks the accomplishment of a goal the Board defined when establishing the school in 2001 of becoming a comprehensive K-12 school.”
This year marks the first graduation for the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School, which began with about 700 students in grades K-2. PAVCS is now a comprehensive K-12 school offering differentiated instruction in regular education and special education programs to more than 3,500 students and this year hails graduates from 42 counties. As the premiere public cyber charter school in Pennsylvania, PAVCS has consistently posted the best combined scores of all cyber charter schools on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment.
Graduation ceremonies were held June 1 at Hidden Valley Four Seasons Resort, Hidden Valley, PA and June 3 at the Willow Valley Resort and Conference Center, Lancaster, PA. During the ceremonies, the representatives of the senior class acknowledged the class gift of a $350 donation to the “Make A Wish Foundation” in the name of PAVCS third-grader Khrystian Fuhrman who passed away this school year from heart failure.
“This commencement exercise recognizes the real time and the real efforts of the educational partners in our unique Diamond Model of Partnership,” said Joanne Jones Barnett, CEO of the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School. “It is owned by the students and their parents and academic coaches who made many sacrifices to participate in the PAVCS model of choice in public education. Our graduates share this moment with their homeroom teachers, family support coordinators, guidance counselors and other adults who have played a part in the metamorphosis from child to young adult.”
The PAVCS Diamond Model Partnership is a collaborative partnership integrating parents, teachers, family support coordinators and K12 Inc. © curriculum, ensuring all PAVCS students reach their full academic and social potential. This partnership has resulted in PAVCS posting the highest overall scores of all of the state’s cyber charter schools on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment, the state’s standardized test related to No Child Left Behind.
