About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

2 Thumbs Up!
When I moved into the Philadelphia area and examined the schools, I didn't like what I saw. I never liked public schools and I was always better working by myself. 21cccs allows me to work alone and get things done faster, but also allows me to be interactive with my P4SL coach (learning coach) and my peers. Every teacher I have met, after 4 years, has really made me feel more comfortable about coming for help. I love that I have so many ways to contact my teacher, and that I can sit in my own room in the VO (Virtual Office) and click a button to get help. My 2 learning coaches I have had really want/ed me to succeed and do what they can to help me with scheduling, homework, or anything else really! they are such amazing people and I think that I will get really far in this school! ENLIST!
Excellent school. Transferred from PA Cyber to 21st....The difference is amazing. Well qualified teachers that my children or myself can talk to...not just e-mail. A challenging curriculum that fosters independence without making the children feel that they are all alone. Teachers are eager to help if you are eager to learn. Really get the feeling that the teachers love what they do and want to help your child succeed! Teachers can be reached for live help from 8-8 M-TH and 8-4 on Friday. Do the research and see for yourself. This school puts it's money into the education, not advertising. The test scores and student to teacher ratio reflect that fact.
This school is amazing, the teachers help us out on a one-to-one basis. We get to redo tests that we did wrong, and we don't have to wake up early or even get out of bed. And, even though the students may seem lazy, 21cccs has made the AYC for 7 years out of 10! It's amazing, and definitely something I would recommend to anybody who is having trouble in a traditional school.
Best school ever! The teachers will take phone calls and help with any questions the students have. 21st Century Charter School is the best cyber school out there!
I adore this school. It's amazing, the teachers are wonderful, and it holds some of my best friends.
I've been to other online schools and it was horrible. And public school was even worse. I was so glad to have found this school. I'm going to be in tears when I graduate, because I honestly won't want to leave. The teachers give you the attention you need, and you actually learn to be more responsible for your own actions. You make your own schedule, and it kind of just helps you feel like you have more control of things.
