The Role of Parental Involvement
One of the most distinguishing traits of South Carolina Connections Academy’s (SCCA) online school program is the opportunity for a high degree of parental involvement in student education. A parent (or another trusted adult) is encouraged and enabled to participate daily in various learning activities, showing the student that education is a priority and helping with his or her success. This type of involvement provides many benefits, including higher test scores and grades, better graduation rates, and increased enrollment in postsecondary education. These parents or responsible adults, also known as Learning Coaches, can be powerful supporters from home.
