The Virtual School Experience
We share a common goal with parents: to ensure that students become productive, successful, and confident adults. Indiana Connections Career Academy’s full-time virtual school program helps students build on their individual strengths and interests in a setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community. Indiana Connections Career Academy mission is to provide you with the opportunities you need to prepare for a high-growth career while you earn your high school diploma.
Below are a few of the driving forces behind this unique approach:
Pathways to Employability
Indiana Connections Career Academy supports students with workforce and career readiness activities, academic and career counseling, CTE programs, and opportunities for real-world experience.
teachers are the foundation of the Indiana Connections Career Academy experience. They are talented, passionate, certified, and specially trained to excel in online teaching. Teachers are drawn to our virtual school in Indiana because they care about young people and believe that personalized one-on-one instruction really works.
Students also work with full-time, certified school counselors who have expertise in career and academic counseling. A Counseling and Career Technical Education Coordinator will plan and participate in career development activities for students, including students’ small group career advisory sessions.
Each and every student has unique abilities, and all students perform better when they receive individual attention in a nurturing learning environment. These guiding principles are the foundation of Connections Academy’s
Personalized Performance Learning® approach. Using this method, teachers get to know the learning style, skills, and interests of each student so they can give every student the best opportunity to excel. This approach also allows students to accelerate learning in areas of strength or receive extra attention in areas of weakness.
When parents take an active role in education, students prosper. As
Learning Coaches, parents can be closely involved in their student's daily education. They’re able to see real progress every day and work with dedicated teachers to keep their students on track. Parents say this involvement is one of the most gratifying aspects of our virtual school in Indiana.
Connections Academy’s user-friendly system,
Connexus®, lets students access a welcoming and collaborative learning experience anywhere they have an Internet connection. Parents love how easy it is to schedule lessons and access grades, too!
Socialization, Community, and Friendships
Learning online doesn’t mean learning alone. Even in a virtual setting, students meet with their teachers and classmates in online
LiveLesson® sessions and have opportunities to share ideas, compare experiences, and have fun learning together. There are even chances to attend in-person gatherings, activities, and field trips. And the flexibility of the virtual school program allows plenty of opportunities for students to pursue and explore other extracurricular activities outside of Indiana Connections Career Academy or through Connections Academy’s clubs!
