How to Enroll at CCA
CCA is a Pennsylvania cyber school that offers year-round, easy-to-navigate open enrollment.
Commonwealth Charter Academy (CCA) makes it easy to enroll your child in our PA public cyber school. All you need to get started with enrollment is an email address or mobile phone number. This information remains private, and CCA values you and your child’s privacy. It is free to enroll for all Pennsylvania families.
Commonwealth Charter Academy (CCA) is a K through 12 statewide public cyber charter school offering a quality online education at no cost to all Pennsylvania students since 2003. It provides a flexible, personalized, career-ready education on your schedule.
Flexibility is a key benefit to enrolling in cyber school. Students can interact online with teachers and classmates in real time with CCA’s live classroom sessions or take the class later at a time that’s more convenient. This allows students to pursue passions outside the classroom, from family trips to internships.
No traditional public or private school lets you decide when to attend class.
We work with families to determine a student’s interests and educational needs, and we customize a learning plan so your child can learn in the way best suited for them. Like other public schools, CCA provides a core curriculum for students but we supplement it with a wide variety of electives, clubs and hands-on activities. Want to learn Chinese in first grade? Want to try a science experiment in a genetics lab? You can do that at CCA.
Enrolling in public cyber charter school also alleviates worries about safety in the classroom or on your way to school. At CCA, you can attend school from the safety of your own home. This is how school should work.
