The mission of Alabama Connections Academy is to help each student maximize his or her potential and meet the highest performance standards through a uniquely individualized learning program.
The Virtual School Experience
Our school leaders and students’ parents share a common goal: to teach our students how to become successful, productive, confident adults. ALCA provides a full-time online public school program that helps students develop and build individual strengths and interests in a setting that is safe yet connected to a larger community. Following are some of the higher standards of our distinctive approach:
Cost-Free Online Education, Superior Curriculum
At ALCA, students are given the opportunity to receive a quality public education online at no charge—meaning that absolutely no tuition or materials fees are required. Our virtual school classes follow all national and state education standards and use the best texts available in order to create a rigorous curriculum that is totally engaging and creative.
Teachers provide the groundwork for your child’s successful Alabama Connections Academy experience. They are talented, certified, and trained to teach online. Teachers are often drawn to our online school because they want to give their students the one-on-one personalized instruction they need.
Students all have different abilities, but with individual nurturing and attention, all students perform better in any given learning environment. These driving principles are the basis of Connections Academy’s Personalized Performance Learning® approach. Our method gives online teachers the chance to get to know students and their individual learning styles, skills, and interests—which in turn provides each student with better opportunities to excel. This approach puts students on the fast track in their areas of strength and gives them the extra attention needed in areas of weakness.
