Middle School Curriculum
Check out some sample lessons and online resources.
We use texts and materials from a wide range of academic partners.
We also offer a wide range of clubs and activities for students to enjoy.
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
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.
