At Indiana Connections Career Academy (INCC), the online high school curriculum is fine-tuned to launch each student into a successful future. With a wide variety of online high school courses, an INCC education provides a solid foundation whether graduates choose to attend college or start a career immediately.
A 21st Century Online School Curriculum for 21st Century Success
Students learn using the award-winning Connections Academy curriculum and Indiana-approved online courses. This comprehensive learning program is a high quality alternative to a traditional public or homeschool curriculum.
Our online curriculum is designed to help students gain the knowledge and thinking skills they’ll need in the workforce or in higher education. At each grade level, structured lessons are blended with self-paced learning to ensure that each student reaches his or her full potential. These courses also develop skills in the important “four Cs” of 21st century learning:
- Critical thinking and problem solving
- Creativity and innovation
Curriculum Experts Bring Lessons to Life
We have a team of experts dedicated to the design, evaluation, and improvement of our free online school curriculum. With classroom teaching experience, subject matter expertise, and advanced degrees in instructional design, curriculum development, and technology education, the team is dedicated to developing a high-quality online curriculum that delivers real results.
After identifying the skills and objectives students need to learn, the team creates lessons to help students practice and develop those skills, also providing assessments to measure student progress along the way. That way, Connections Academy students don’t just learn a subject—they master it.
The curriculum development team partners with our talented in-house videographers, graphic designers, and computer programmers to bring the curriculum to life in a multidimensional way. They also review and select the best texts and instructional materials from leading publishers to weave into units, lessons, and activities. Then, we deliver these high-quality resources right to each student’s home.

Interacting in a Virtual Classroom
Student interaction is a critical part of the overall educational process. While most of the instruction supports “anytime, anywhere” learning, students also participate in a live online classroom environment where they meet with their teachers and classmates using LiveLesson® technology. This is also the technology students use to turn in homework assignments and securely track their own progress.
