Online Public School Offers Students Innovative College- and
Career-Prep Opportunities

Students and teachers at Cyber
Academy of South Carolina
(CASC) will start classes for the
2018-2019 school year on August 22. A full-time, tuition-free online
public school, CASC is open to students in Kindergarten through 12th
grade throughout the state.

"We are thrilled to begin our sixth year providing South Carolina
families with a public education option that prepares students for
college and careers," said Head of School David Crook. "Cyber Academy of
South Carolina's teachers are committed to each student's academic
success, and our online platform allows us to provide a personalized
learning experience to meet each student's unique needs."

CASC combines innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by
South Carolina-certified teachers. Students take a full course load
across the core subjects of math, science, language arts, history, art
and music, as well as a variety of electives, including world languages,
honors and Advanced Placement® courses at the appropriate
grade levels.

In addition to the core courses, CASC middle and high school students
have the opportunity to take Career Technical Education (CTE) courses
through the school's Destinations
Pathways Program
. Through CASC's Destinations program, online
courses introduce students to specialty trade skills in the fields of
business management and administration, education, marketing, or
information technology. Students can choose to go on to take
examinations for industry-recognized credentials, and gain an
introduction to future career opportunities.

CASC students can also take advantage of K12's new partnership with STEM
Premier
, a collaborative, relationship-building platform connecting
students with career pathways, jobs, colleges, trade schools, and
scholarship opportunities. Students create online portfolios
highlighting career interests, academic achievements, extracurricular
activities and certifications. The platform allows STEM Premier member
organizations to recruit for skilled talent.

"Students enrolled in CASC's Destinations pathways are being prepared
for in-demand, lucrative career opportunities in the 21st century
workforce," said Casey Welch, STEM Premier President and CEO. "We look
forward to providing an opportunity for these students to showcase their
skills, talents and abilities on the STEM Premier platform."

Throughout the school year, CASC builds a sense of community through
in-person field trips, community service opportunities and social
outings. Students connect with their peers through virtual clubs around
shared interests, and graduating seniors are celebrated at an in-person
commencement ceremony each spring.

CASC is accepting applications for enrollment for the 2018-2019 academic
year. Families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person
information session hosted by the school. To learn more about enrollment
and for a schedule of upcoming events, visit casc.k12.com
