Flexibility & Student-Centered Choices
At Greater Latrobe School District, we understand that the traditional bricks and mortar classroom is not always the best learning environment for every student. As youth develop, their social, emotional, and academic needs will evolve and change. Therefore, we feel that providing online options for students is a viable way to meet their varied needs. These options, provided by the Greater Latrobe School District, give students and families a choice in the academic schedule and activities in which students participate.
Students have the benefit of taking core academic courses online, as well as having the opportunity to take electives such as fine arts, band, and other courses in traditional classrooms.
The program gives students the ability to get a customized, online education while maintaining important social connections at school. Our knowledgeable counselors will help students and families develop a schedule that best suits the interests and needs of each child.
