Thank you MC Cyber Academy Families!
We have been able to educate nearly 300 students in our district-wide MC Cyber Academy!  We have embraced learning in this new and challenging time and students have succeeded in gaining a valuable education this year! 
 
Fourth quarter ends May 25th which is a short time away.  Students that are currently enrolled in the MCACA may still return to the buildings for in-person instruction to finish out the school year.  We are not, however, accepting new enrollments into MCACA for the remainder of fourth quarter with only a few short weeks remaining.
 
Information will be posted on this site for when enrollments begin for the fall!  Thank you for your hard work and effort!  We have almost finished the most memorable school year in recent history here at the hive!  WE ARE...M.C.!

WHAT IS THE MC CYBER ACADEMY?
Stingers
The Marion Center Area Cyber Academy offers an online learning option for students throughout the district in grades Pre-K-12.
 

MCACA uses the Edgenuity platform and is taught by Marion Center and Edgenuity teachers. This is a comprehensive cyber option with the features of traditional cyber, but the added benefit of a local connection to our teachers. Students within the academy can schedule times during office hours to meet in person or virtually with their teachers as needed throughout the school year and are encouraged to participate in the district’s extracurricular programs and activities. Because the curriculum is aligned with Marion Center’s curriculum, students can move from cyber to brick and mortar with ease.

Students in the cyber program will receive an HP Chromebook computer to access coursework from home.

Advantages to the Marion Center Area Cyber Academy:

  • On-line home based learning that is not bound by time or location
  • Instant, on-demand access to tutoring and help “on the spot” so students can get the help when they need it
  • Ability to work with our very own Marion Center teachers
  • Opportunities to meet face-to-face for virtual tutoring and learning sessions with their teachers
  • Weekly progress monitoring reports are sent to families and students to monitor progress as well as achievement
  • Opportunity to participate in sports, band, chorus, ROTC, etc.
  • There are nearly 350 courses to enroll in
  • State mandated PSSA and Keystone testing done at MC avoiding long drives to testing centers
  • Seniors will earn a Marion Center High School diploma
  • Maintaining Stinger Pride!
