“With college costs spiraling out of control nationwide, it’s good to get an idea of what you want to do before you get there. Our career program lets students try new things and get a sense for the options they have, while still in high school, helping Pennsylvania students take charge of their own future,” says Insight PA CEO, Eileen Cannistraci.

"The faculty at this school have been a shining light, a beacon of hope and a spiritual compass who have brought my daughter back from a very dark and dismal place in her life and in her education,” said Mr. David Marsh, father of an Insight PA 7th grader. “Together, they have rekindled the fire that was dulled to a flickering spark as a result of bullying in her previous brick and mortar school. My daughter now dreams again, now plays again, and now has hope of a promising tomorrow. Their dedication and undying support have given my family a new, stronger, foundation to build upon and I stand behind them 100%."
Students choose online school for a variety of reasons including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
