School Leader

GeRita Connor is the school leader at Lowcountry Connections Academy. She has a Bachelor of Science from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and a Masters of School Administration from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. She’s been working with Connections Academy since 2016 before joining the Lowcountry Connections Academy family in 2021.

Ms. Connor is proud to be part of an inclusive school community that believes every member plays a role in the overall success of our students.

“I began a career in education because when I was a third-grade student, my teacher not only influenced my learning, but also invested in my future. She encouraged me to always push beyond my limits and supported me through a major change in my life. It was during that year that I decided I wanted to do the same for other students.

"I love building relationships with students and families and understanding the value each of them adds to our school community."

I love that every student can experience learning in the ways that best align with their individual needs. My favorite part of school leadership is the ability to positively influence the overall learning, growth and development of our students and staff.

"What makes online learning different from learning in the brick-and-mortar setting is the level of access and flexibility the online setting provides students to take their learning beyond what they could have ever imagined". The online setting removes some of the limitations and barriers to students progressing at a higher pace. Opportunities that exist for students beyond high school are introduced as early as elementary school, and students can work with their teachers and counselors to design a plan that aligns with their postsecondary goals.

Connections Academy has made a commitment to developing students into responsible and productive contributors to society and our world by setting expectations at all stages of their education to be their best.”
