What began as an on line school with a few hundred students has grown into an empire, developing curriculum and spawning cyber schools throughout the nation.

To many, Nick Trombetta is a visionary who has launched the cyber school revolution in Pennsylvania and is a hero to graduates of Pa. Cyber.
Rob Pratte talked with the leaders of the Pa. Cyber School Saturday morning. The discussion was about how the Cyber Schools are changing the way we look at education.
