Connections Academy—Accredited Online School

Connections Academy is a division of Connections Education LLC, which is accredited by AdvancED, the national accreditation commission that represents twenty-seven thousand public and private schools and districts across the United States and in sixty-five countries worldwide. Many of the Connections Academy schools are also accredited by one or more of six regional accrediting organizations for higher education institutions recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the United States Department of Education. Our new schools typically begin the accreditation process after operating for a full year.

These accreditations ensure that the schools are providing quality education that can be reciprocated with other schools. The accreditations also validate the value of our education to other accredited educational institutions.
