Redefining Academic Success

Inspiring Students to Become Their Best Selves

At Connections Academy, we believe that no two educational journeys are the same. That’s why we built a learning experience that helps students—and their families—create their own definition of student success, both in and out of the classroom.

We offer students one-on-one attention focused on helping them fulfill their potential and overcome any obstacles they may face. This nurturing environment will help inspire your student to grow into a strong and capable person, ready for whatever the world has in store for them.

Helping Students Reach New Heights

Our goal is to help students grow into resilient individuals who can thrive in a changing world. Our learning model enables each student to develop independence and responsibility, explore their individual passions, and ultimately learn how they learn best. Success can take many different forms, including (but certainly not limited to!) students who:

  • thrive in college, thanks to college preparation provided by Connections Academy
  • go on to pursue their unique interests, like entrepreneurship or acting
  • deepen their knowledge in Advanced Placement®* courses
  • spend more time with their family because of their flexible schedule
  • find the support they need for academic areas they previously struggled with
  • gain social support and acceptance after experiencing bullying in a former school

Caretaker Involvement

Championing Your Student’s Success

We believe that students learn better when they feel supported and encouraged by those most important to them. Because of our at-home learning model, parents play an essential and active part in their student’s success, taking on the role of Learning Coach every day. By inviting teachers, children, and their families to collaborate, we create a tight-knit, goal-oriented team that supports student goals.
