"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life." - Author Unknown

ESASD has found that students attend cyber school for many reasons; to work towards professional aspirations, to accommodate training or working schedules, to deal with illnesses or other family issues — or when a traditional school setting does not work well for them. The ESASD Virtual Academy initiated from the district’s understanding that not all children can or want to go to school inside a school building. It is the mission of the Virtual Academy to:

  • Provide a free public education for East Stroudsburg Area School District students in an online, collaborative and teacher-facilitated learning environment
  • Provide additional avenues within our district for drop-outs, charter, and home school students
  • Provide the opportunity for students to earn a high school diploma
  • Provide challenging learning opportunities in all academic areas
