Celebrating 20 years
serving the Greater Shenango Valley Community youth.
A message from
Mr. Mike Gentile,
Chief Executive Officer Keystone Charter School
Welcome to PA’s 1st Charter School where I have served as Keystone’s CEO for the past 18 years. With the passing of Act 22, Keystone Education Center Charter School became the first charter school in this Commonwealth in 1997. In that year, there were only six charter schools in Pennsylvania. Currently, there are 174 charter schools educating over 128,000 students.
Keystone Charter School is a brick and mortar school operating out of two buildings; a middle school for students in grades seven and eight and a high school for students in grades nine through twelve. Our current enrollment is 225 students. These students come to us from over 60 school districts and 13 counties in western Pennsylvania.
We are excited to begin the 2015-16 school year with some new additions and improvements which will help facilitate a richer learning environment for our students. Some of these additions and improvements include:
The Keystone Charter School was established to provide educational alternatives that address the needs of a wide variety of students who have difficulty functioning in the traditional public school environment. The intent of the Keystone Charter School is to afford students the opportunity to gain positive educational experiences, to earn a high school diploma, to develop marketable skills and to develop the necessary work ethic needed for post high school success. The school will also address the behavioral and emotional needs of each child.
