Personalized Learning Program

Program Vision

All students in the Upper Perkiomen community will be provided with flexible and equitable learning opportunities and environments tailored to their specific interests, passions and needs.

online learning

At 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 Personalized Learning Program is an extension of the Upper Perkiomen School District. It provides an asynchronous, online educational experience for students who are considering attending a cyber charter school. 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. The school district has partnered with Edugenuity in order to provide a full complement of core and elective coursework to our students. Students 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. The program is easy to navigate and is student-centered. The courses include web-based curriculum with materials, highly qualified teachers, and a proprietary technology platform specifically designed for each grade level education. The Upper Perkiomen Personalized Learning Program is dedicated to providing the most dynamic, relative, and global education available for all learners.

Program Benefits

The UP Personalized Learning Program will afford students the opportunity to work on their courses anytime and anywhere. Students will be able to work from home, at a local coffee shop or in our high school library. Please consult the school guidance counselor, building assistant principal or Innovation Specialist for suggestions on how to best accommodate scheduling needs. Enrolled students will also have the opportunity to participate in school functions, athletic teams and extracurricular activities . We encourage students to become involved in our local assemblies, field trips, after-school clubs, dances, and athletics.

By participating in our online program, students will be provided local technology support, on-demand teacher support, asynchronous courses, and the ability to take state-mandated testing (PSSAs and Keystones) in our schools. All students enrolled in the Upper Perkiomen Personalized Learning Program will receive a district issued laptop (after providing technology usage fee) and printing/ scanning capabilities. Enrolled students will also have access to career and college counseling services as well as student support services through our guidance department. Last but not least, students will work towards earning an accredited Upper Perkiomen High School diploma.
