The school’s rigorous and engaging curriculum includes courses in English/language arts, math, science, history, world languages, art and music, as well as elective and Advanced Placement® courses for high school students.

Each cluster is designed to give students a head start on their career goals by preparing them for technical and specialty trade certifications, or offering college career credits and workplace experiences.
“Our curriculum and instruction are designed let our students discover their own learning style and foster a life-long love of learning,” said David Crook, head of school at Cyber Academy of South Carolina. “Giving younger students the ability to progress faster through subjects at which they excel and, at the same time, giving them time for remediation in the subjects where it’s needed ensures they achieve a mastery of topics and skills before entering high school. Combine this with the ability to learn in a truly blended environment and we feel we’ve found the path to success.”
