Apply to PLA West


Philadelphia Learning Academy West is currently accepting dedicated students who wish to take advantage of a smaller school environment, catch up on HS credits, and experience a more personalized approach to learning. We offer direct instruction classes, along with daily exposure to Edgenuity (computer-based) courses which assist students in accelerating their credit standing. This is ideal for students who are overaged and under-credited or who may just need a smaller school setting in order to be successful.

Those interested in the program must submit the following information:

  • Full name
  • School ID #
  • Copy of IEP (if applicable)
  • Copy of Official Transcript
  • Parent/guardian contact information
