Online Extracurriculars for K-12 Students

Our online clubs and activities are designed to help your student make connections while pursuing their interests. Whether your student is interested in journalism or science, art or chess, or something else entirely, our online clubs empower students to gain social confidence and compete in contests at local, state, and national levels. In addition, many of our high school students find that participating in clubs is a great way to round out their extracurriculars and showcase their interest and passions on their college applications.

District-Wide Competitive Sports and Activities

Thanks to Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) guidelines, students can participate in competitive sports teams and in competitive activities. MSHSL’s mission is to provide educational and leadership opportunities for students across its membership of public, private, online, charter, and homeschools.

In addition, our schools participate in Connections Esports, which brings together several Connections Academy Esports Clubs. Depending on grade level, your middle or high school student can participate in competitions by playing Rocket League or Valorant. In 2022, we were ranked #1 nationally in Rocket League!
