Online Middle School at Missouri
The On-Ramp to Success
Middle school is an exciting time. At Missouri Connections Academy, middle school is when our students start to become more accountable for their studies. As they become more independent, their responsibilities begin to increase. Missouri Connections Academy strives to help students reach their full potential and in turn show them all the different possibilities that are open to them.
During the middle school years, students’ online lesson plans are written directly to them, and their Learning Coaches transition into a more supportive role. Our middle school students are counseled to take the initiative in their studies and are also held to a higher standard as they get closer to high school.
Middle School Curriculum Content
Support for Online Middle School Students
In middle school, Missouri Connections Academy students work directly with their highly-qualified subject area teachers for their online classes. Students also have an advisory teacher or a guidance counselor who works with them to provide overall support. Online middle school students get to join in teacher-led online instruction as well as virtual review sessions with our LiveLesson® tool. This allows for more specific instructional assistance and provides students with the opportunity to work and communicate with peers.
Online Course Electives and Activities
Students can change up their education with a wide variety of different courses and activities that are offered as part of our middle school curriculum. In addition to the elective courses offered to Missouri Connections Academy middle school students, kids can also get involved in various school clubs and activities. Whether they want to try writing for the school paper, or they love math and want to compete in a Mathematical Olympiad, the options are endless!
Our gifted students also have the opportunity to take high school level classes and earn high school credit early, with their counselor’s approval.
