At the Upper Perkiomen School District, we believe that all students should be afforded the opportunity to participate in a learning environment that is designed to meet their specific needs. The Upper Perkiomen Online Learning Academy (UPOLA) is an extension of the Upper Perkiomen School District. It provides an asynchronous, online educational experience for students who prefer an online learning environment, with the same standards-aligned, rigorous curriculum. Our goal is to improve digital literacy, increase college and career readiness, promote the value of e-learning and raise the technical capacity of all those involved. Upper Perk has partnered with Edgenuity in order to provide a full complement of core and elective coursework to our students. Students in grades 1-5 will take their courses fully online through a partnership with the MVP program provided through the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit. Middle and High School students who qualify may choose to take all their courses online or they may choose to take a blend of online courses and traditional brick-and-mortar courses in our schools.
Curriculum offered to students is developed by Pennsylvania certified and highly qualified teachers in order to meet our district’s expectations and state level standards. The program is easy to navigate and is student-centered. The courses include a web-based curriculum with materials, highly qualified teachers, and a proprietary technology platform specifically designed for each grade level education. UPOLA is dedicated to providing the most dynamic, relative, and global education available for all learners.
Any questions about UPOLA may be directed to UPOLA@upsd.org, or you can talk to your student's building principal or counselor.
