Reach Cyber Charter School, a Pennsylvania statewide online public charter school, is making career development a top priority and is preparing students for the future by partnering with Credly.
Credly offers a digital badging platform that recognizes knowledge, skills and achievements as digital credentials that enable individuals to capture future opportunities, whether it be schooling or joining the workforce.
Through this digital platform, Reach Cyber students will have the opportunity to build a digital portfolio of their experiences and certifications by earning badges in six pathways: Arts and Communications, Business Administration, STEM, Health Science, Human Services, and Information Technology.
Digital badging will begin during the 2020-21 school year and will give students the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials through the completion of select courses such as Microsoft Office Specialist, Microsoft Technology Associate, Microsoft Programming with Java, Microsoft Programming with Python and Microsoft Programming using HTML and CSS. Additional course offerings such as Communication Skills for Business, Entrepreneurship and Small Business, and more will allow students to earn certifications and gain practical skills to increase their employability.
Reach Cyber is currently enrolling for the 2020-21 school year. Families interested in Reach Cyber Charter School are encouraged to attend an upcoming online information session. These information sessions give families the opportunity to speak with current teachers and staff, learn more about the school’s curriculum and program, and help them find out if a cyber school is the right fit for their student.
