JM eLearning Academy Cyber School

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 Brandon Robinson at brobinson@jmsd.org to set up a meeting to discuss this program for your child(ren).

Why choose the JM eLearning Academy Cyber Program?

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.

 

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. Rafail can be reached at 724-833-2310, ext. 1215 or via email at grafail@jmsd.org. 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.
