The middle school years at Connections Academy are an exciting time as students become increasingly independent with their studies and begin to take more responsibility for their learning.

Lesson directions are now written directly to students as Learning Coaches move into a more supportive role. Students in our online middle school are encouraged to take the lead in their studies and are held to high standards as they move toward their high school years.

Support for Middle School Students

Virtual middle school students start to work directly with highly qualified subject area teachers for their courses, but remain under the guidance of a counselor or an advisory teacher for overall support. They actively participate in teacher-led, virtual instruction and review sessions via our LiveLesson® tool, providing not only more specific instructional assistance, but also the opportunity to communicate and work with their peers.

Course Electives and Activities

Students vary their education with exposure to many different subjects and activities. Students in online middle school programs choose from a wide range of elective courses and become involved with the variety of virtual clubs and activities.

Additionally, gifted students have access to high school level courses and begin to earn high school credit, subject to their counselor’s approval. Please check with your Connections Academy school to see if this option is available.

A Great Alternative

Connections Academy is an effective alternative to traditional public, private, and homeschool middle school classes for a variety of reasons. While they pursue their studies from home, students in our online middle school curriculum are exposed to diverse subjects and supported by qualified teachers and free learning resources.
