The Solanco School District has operated the Solanco Virtual Academy (SVA) since the spring of 2006. The Solanco School District has operated the Solanco Virtual Academy (SVA) since the spring of 2006. SVA offers kindergarten through 12th grade online virtual learning opportunities and choice for resident students. Since inception, the SVA has provided a rigorous standards-based educational program for resident students, plus it has saved Solanco taxpayers over $750,000 in charter school tuition.
Online learning is not for all students. Yet for some, it is a very viable choice, even an advantage for their particular learning style. SVA partners with the Intermediate Unit 13 (LLVS – Lancaster-Lebanon Virtual Solutions) as our provider of content. The curricula used are through Accelerate Education, Edison Learning, eDynamic Learning, and Apex Learning. All curriculums are aligned to national standards and all teachers are PA certified.
Like Solanco’s “brick and mortar” schools, the SVA program is provided at no charge to resident parents/students. While the district understands that charter schools remain a choice for parents, Solanco’s direct operational experience and expertise with online learning provides unique learning advantages for students, and does so at a lower cost to the community. In fact, the cost of a student in the SVA is less than half what state regulations require the district to pay a charter school to educate that same student.
