Overview Connections Academy’s mission is to help each student maximize his or her potential and meet the highest performance standards.

Our program is a rapidly growing form of free public school that students attend outside the walls of a traditional classroom. It combines strong parental involvement of learning at home, the expertise and accountability of public education, and the flexibility of online classes.

How does Connections Academy work?

The student is at the center of the Connections Academy program. Students learn outside the traditional classroom—typically from home, but also from libraries, community centers, and occasionally from the road.

Assisting the student in day-to-day activities is an adult Learning Coach, typically a parent, but also could be another family member or responsible adult caregiver. Please review the role of a parent or legal guardian by reviewing the Regulatory Program Description.

The teacher directs the learning, working directly with both the student and Learning Coach to develop an individual learning plan, provide instruction, and evaluate assignments. Connections Academy teachers work together from centralized offices, providing coordinated support and accountability that often can not be achieved with teachers working on their own.

Connections Academy provides each student with textbooks, lesson plans, online resources and other curriculum materials. At the start of school we send you a shipment of materials including, for schools where it is offered, a desktop computer. Instruction and administration is conducted through the Internet, by telephone, and by mail. Connections also are made through in-person activities, such as planned field trips and informal gatherings.
