About the JM eLearning Academy Cyber Program
The purpose of the JM eLearning Academy Cyber Program is to offer students the education they need to prepare for life in the 21st century. It provides students with opportunities they may not have previously had through their public education experience. Jefferson-Morgan is proud to meet the needs and wants of students and their parents in the same quality academic environment with which stakeholders have become accustomed.
The staff of Jefferson-Morgan is proud to offer various new offerings through the Cyber Program combined with the traditional offerings of past years. The quality of education with which you are accustomed remains as high as ever, but the courses are presented in a different way. No matter which program in which students choose to enroll, successful completion will result in a Jefferson-Morgan diploma. We are proud to meet the requests of Jefferson-Morgan families using an environment that combines quality academics with technological advancement.
If you would like more information, please contact Sara Bates at [email protected] to set up a meeting to discuss this program for your child(ren).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can my child switch from traditional classes to cyber classes during the school year or vice-versa?
Yes! Since the cyber classes and traditional classes both follow the Jefferson-Morgan approved curriculum so transitioning can be quite easy for students. We ask that students try to only switchback at the end of a quarter. Special Circumstances may be permitted by the building principal.
Can my student complete all of their classes at home?
The vast majority of classwork can be completed at home if your family chooses that option. As a JM student in our program, students are permitted to schedule time to come into the building to receive help.
How do I transfer from a private or charter school?
Families can register their child with our district office. Mrs. McCombs can be reached at 724-833-2310, ext. 1242 or via email at [email protected] . Once the student is registered with the school district a guidance counselor or principal will work with you and our cyber teachers to place the student in the appropriate courses. Completing the online cyber school application will help to expedite the process.
How can my child receive help while they are working on a cyber-course?
Much of the classwork allows students to retry work if they have not mastered a skill. They can ask questions to our cyber teachers, send emails for help, or log-on to an online help area to chat live with their teacher.
Is there a cost to attend the Jefferson-Morgan eLearning academy?
No. As a public school, Jefferson-Morgan students can attend cyber classes completely free of charge during the school year.
Is my child eligible to enroll in the JM Cyber Service? What grade levels are available?
Any student in grades K-12 living in the boundaries of the Jefferson-Morgan School District can apply. If your child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP or GIEP), a team meeting must be held prior to enrollment.
Will there be opportunities for social activities for my student in the JM eLearning Academy Service?
Since all cyber students are enrolled in the Jefferson-Morgan School District, they have the ability to join any clubs or activities offered in our schools.
How will my child's progress be monitored?
A student’s progress is monitored on a weekly basis. Parents receive accounts or emails that show a visual report of your child’s progress and students can access real-time progress reports by using our Parent Portal. Students are able to view their progress each time they log-in to the system.
Will my child receive a diploma? Is there a graduation ceremony?
Students who participate in the JM eLearning Academy Cyber program will be eligible to receive a Jefferson-Morgan High School diploma and are eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies with all graduating Jefferson-Morgan students.
