There are several cyber schools in Pa. My son started one near West Chester last Feb. when he was in 9th grade. He loves it because he has so much more time for his interests and to do things with his friends. Most of his friends are older so he didn't talk to them much in school anyway. I did say that if his grades dropped even slightly (he was allowed only one B) or if his social life declined, he was going back to his old school.
Well he has received straight A's both times and actually has too much of a social life. Lol.
I would make sure your child has lots of interaction with other children. I feel that is most important.
Also, there is lots of parental involvement per day with younger children.
Send me a message if you have any more questions.
