Online Middle School in California

As students enter the middle school years, the need for independence increases. While they still need adult support, they also crave the opportunity to be responsible for their own actions. Our middle school curriculum at California Connections Academy has been uniquely designed to address these needs.

The academy’s Learning Coaches are here to support our students, and we also give them an appropriate amount of space to take responsibility for their own learning.
