The Connections Academy program is a rapidly growing form of free public school that students in grades K_12 attend outside the walls of a traditional classroom. This is a unique program that combines Strong parental involvement, expertise and accountability of public education, flexibility of online classes.
Assisting the student in day-to-day activities is an adult Learning Coach, who is typically a parent, but also could be another family member or responsible adult caregiver. A Connections Academy teacher works directly with both the student and Learning Coach to develop an individual learning plan, provide instruction, and evaluate assignments. Instruction and administration is conducted through the Internet, by telephone, and by mail.
Our teachers work together from centralized offices and hubs, under the supervision of a principal or other administrator, providing coordinated support and accountability.
