Did you know that the Boyertown Area School District has offered virtual learning since 2012? Approximately 5 years ago, BASD partnered with the Berks County Intermediate Unit's Berks Online Learning program to offer a cyber option for students enrolled in BASD. This partnership delivers a high-quality, standards-based program with high-quality, professional teachers. Our cyber program mirrors the quality and diversity of course offerings, programs, and services available in our "brick and mortar" schools. This option is a complete educational program delivered online that, upon successful completion, results is a BASD Diploma...learning globally and graduating locally!BASD Cyber Program
