Online High School Program

Teens and technology go together hand in hand, which makes online high school classes a natural fit for high school students. Pecos Connections Academy’s online high school courses* give today’s high school students the solid educational foundation they need to have a successful future. Our online schooling for high school students is designed to help them not only to learn the subjects but also to master them.

Math, science, English, and social studies are the core online high school classes our students use to build a solid foundation that prepares them for attending college or starting a career after they graduate.

* PCA serves students in grades K–11. The school will add one grade per year, ultimately serving students in grades K–12.
