an overview of the shade cyber program

P@nther P@thways is the cyber program of Shade-Central City School District.  We use an online learning platform similar to other online institutions.  The platform is called PLATO Learning.  PLATO Learning is a Pennsylvania Academic Standards based online curriculum grounded in a tradition of solid research, sound pedagogy, and applied innovation.  PLATO develops rigorous, relevant curriculum that challenges learners with a 21st century approach - engaging them with interactive, media-rich content.  The active learning approach enables students to apply what they’ve learned and practice and check their understanding of concepts.  Our on line learning will be customized to meet the needs of each individual student!  More can be learned by visiting

Students choosing to attend P@nther P@thways would be eligible to receive a Shade diploma upon successfully completing graduation requirements and would have access to all of Shade’s sport programs and extracurricular activities, as traditional Shade-Central City students have.
