    All three of our children have been in PAVCS since Kindergarten! We have a son in 8th grade, a daughter in 5th grade, and our youngest son in 3rd grade. The teachers have been great every year. Our kids have done so well in this school, our oldest is in all honors courses and is also in National Junior Honor Society. Our other two children have straight As as well! The outings that we get to take the kids to have been so great! They have friends that they've made through the school that they will have for years to come! We have been very happy with PAVCS! Especially with COVID, we did not even skip a beat!

    I have been going to PAVCS for three years now and I love it. Its astrosphere is amazing, Things never get out of hand, and the teachers are very on top of it, even if your an asynchronous student! The clubs are awesome, I know that some of the kid's favorite clubs are the Rowdy Robot Show, Talent Show, and the Fitness Club was popular for a while. I even started the Middle School Chess Club three years ago, but it slowly whittled down and now it's being canceled this year. Other than that, the clubs are going on strong, and everybody loves to attend them! The school its self is amazing, the staff finds the best teachers ever (Personal Favorite-Mrs. Campbell) and the have fun teaching us kids to. Overall, I would rate the school 10/10 in every category, it's just awesome, I love it, so should you!

    Have a great day :)

    My daughter and I have had a very good experience with PA Virtual. We needed something flexible for our family and this is it! We can even take school "on the go" when we need to. This allows for appts and such without her having to miss or make up much class work. The teachers are wonderful with keeping in touch about what needs completed, when, and where to find informatin. It was a bit tricky in the beginning to nagivate the sites used for all the curriulum and material but we both quickly picked up on those. My daughter is 8 and has little trouble following accessing what she needs. The only change I would suggest is having a little more synchronous time for the classes that the parents (as the learning coach) have to help teach. It is a little tricky for parents that work (as do I) to sometimes get everything organized and completed for those classes.
