The Reach program

Reach Cyber’s high school program offers students a wide range of courses to provide a solid foundation for whatever comes next after graduation; whether attending college or starting a career, through numerous professional development opportunities in and out of the classroom. In addition, the school features three flexible graduation pacing options that allow students to excel at a rate that meets their individual needs.

Dozens of students in the Class of 2021 graduated a year or semester earlier than they would have in a traditional program because they pursued Reach Cyber’s Accelerated Pace option, allowing them to attend summer, fall and spring sessions full-time to earn more credits throughout the year.
