Podcast: Cyber School in Real Life

Meet Jake Swink.

Jake is a 2013 graduate of Bloomsburg University with a degree in Computer Science. In a few weeks, he will be utilizing these skills as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force specializing in cyber operations.

Jake is also a member of the first graduating class (’09) of Commonwealth Connections Academy—one of 16 cyber charter schools in Pennsylvania that together serve more than 35,000 students.

These students and their parents are continuing to choose cyber school because it best fits their unique education needs. Amidst continuing calls for arbitrary cuts to cyber school funding, we should keep in mind the thousands of real students, like Jake, whose education hangs in the balance. 

Listen to Jake tell the story of how cyber school helped propel him to academic success and to a career in military service in our latest podcast.
