Bellefonte Area School District offers cyber education for its students who may feel this form of alternative learning is a good fit for them. Different than cyber charter schools, the BeLA program – Bellefonte eLearning Academy, started in 2009 – means a student who goes through the virtual program is still a student of BASD and may participate in other Bellefonte Area-offered classes, clubs, athletics, fine arts and extracurricular activities provided by the district. He or she may also work one-on-one with a certified teacher, go on international trips through the district and attend Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology. Additionally, upon graduation, he or she will receive a Bellefonte Area diploma. To visit the BeLA website, visit this link: https://www.basd.net//site/Default.aspx?PageID=48.
