Etown Cyber

At Etown Cyber, our goal is to offer a robust educational program for students K-12 that want to pursue their education in a non-traditional format. The program's flexibility is designed to meet the individualized needs of our students. Unlike outside cyber charter schools, where students may be in a class with teachers and classmates from across the Commonwealth, students enrolled in Etown Cyber remain enrolled in their local school district.
