Parents and students choose Connections Academy for many different reasons, but what they share is a desire for the best possible learning experience. These are some of the reasons why so many families think Connections Academy is the best educational choice:
Fully Accredited, Customized Learning
Imagine an outstanding, fully accredited program customized to each student’s unique talents, challenges, and schedule. Our Personalized Performance Learning (PPL) approach, empowers students to learn in a way that is suited to their strengths and needs.
Best of Class Curriculum
We take the best of late-edition textbooks, materials, and online resources from leading educational publishers and add resources created by our own curriculum specialists. Ongoing, we evaluate and adjust our curriculum to ensure it continues to be the best of what is available anywhere.
I personally love Ohio Connections Academy because of its strong traditional curriculum and the fact that you can work with textbooks instead of being glued to the computer. There are loads of opportunities for enrichment built into the curriculum, as well as for individual acceleration."
Exceptional Teachers Who Make A Difference
Our talented, state-certified teachers develop close, supportive relationships with students and their families. Whether they’re leading a discussion online or working one-on-one by phone to help with a problem, our teachers are committed to each student’s success. From lesson plans to grading to regular parent/teacher discussions, they perform all the traditional teaching functions and more. In fact, Connections Academy teachers often have a closer relationship with their students and families than they did when teaching in a traditional setting.
When parents take an active role in education, students prosper. As Learning Coaches, parents can be closely involved in their children’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 it’s one of the most gratifying aspects of our program.
