Like the educational program of the Pocono Mountain School District's traditional "brick and mortar" schools, the Cyber Program is based on the Pennsylvania Academic Standards. This standards aligned curriculum emphasizes the students' demonstration of mastering specific skills by engaging in an academic program that emphasizes proficiency in all curricular areas, whether the academics are acquired through distance or local learning. Students participating in the PMSD Cyber Program demonstrate their proficiency in a variety of ways. Students who participate in the Cyber Program range academically from those who have a sound skill base in all academic areas to those who have been identified as having learning deficits.
The PMSD Cyber Program strives to engage students in a highly motivational, student-centered educational program that relies on basic educational principles while utilizing the latest information and communications technology to promote student achievement and to foster higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills. Students have the opportunity to master essential content skills and to build a strong foundation enabling them to compete in the workforce of today and the future.
