Online Middle School in South Carolina
The On-Ramp to Success
During middle school at South Carolina Connections Academy (SCCA), our online students begin to be more responsible for their own learning and become more independent in the process. SCCA strives to help middle school students realize their potential and all the possibilities that are open to them because of it.
As part of your student’s middle school experience, lessons are written and sent directly to them, and their Learning Coaches transition into a more supportive role. Virtual middle school students are urged to take control of their studies and are also held to higher standards as they advance toward high school.
Support for Online Middle School Students
While in middle school, SCCA students begin to work with qualified subject area teachers when it comes to their online courses. However, they do remain under the supervision of an assigned counselor or advisory teacher for support. Students also actively contribute to and participate in various teacher-led virtual instruction sessions through our LiveLesson® tool. This tool provides specific instructional helps but also gives students the opportunity to work more closely with their peers.
Course Electives and Activities
A student’s online education can be varied as SCCA offers many different subjects and activities as part of our middle school curriculum. SCCA’s online middle school program has a wide selection of elective courses and enables students to be involved in many school clubs and activities. Middle schoolers can participate in activities and join clubs that offer depth to their educational experience such our Mathematical Olympiads or even writing for the school’s newspaper.
gifted students are given access to high-school courses and can start earning high school credit, depending on their counselor’s approval.
