Online Middle School Program
Progressing Toward Success
The middle school years at Arkansas Connections Academy (ARCA) are exciting for students and for us. It is in these years and grade levels that students become more independent in their studies and begin to take more responsibility for their schooling. ARCA helps guide students toward new possibilities and allows them to discover their own individual potential.
Middle School Curriculum Content
Support for Online Middle School Students
While middle school students remain under the guidance of a counselor or advisory teacher, they also have the opportunity to work directly with qualified subject area teachers. They actively join in on teacher-led virtual instruction as well as review sessions with our LiveLesson® tool, which provides more specific instruction and assistance and also allows students to communicate and work with their peers.
Online Course Electives and Activities
Through exposure to varied elective courses, students are able to broaden their understanding of the world and participate in many different subjects and activities. Students in our Arkansas virtual middle school program choose from myriad elective courses and can become involved in different school clubs and activities. Some of these activities could include writing for the school newspaper, doing science experiments, or competing in the Mathematical Olympiads.
Additionally, gifted students have access to high-school-level courses and begin to earn high school credit, subject to their counselor’s approval.
