One of the most significant differences in online school versus traditional school is the amount of parental involvement. In a traditional school, you are rarely involved in your child’s day-to-day learning, but online school gives you the chance to be there throughout their school day. Not all online schools make sure parents are equipped to be their child’s Learning Coach. Connections Academy, on the other hand, offers an entire slate of resources to ensure parents are not just comfortable as Learning Coaches, but are empowered to provide the support their child needs.
Plus, parents and students can reach out to teachers whenever they need additional support. Whether it’s a small question about a specific assignment or a larger concern about a lesson or project, Connections Academy teachers are available to provide the guidance and one-on-one attention students need to learn and grow.
In addition to teachers, Connections Academy staff and counselors are also on hand to provide support with wellness counseling, college guidance, and more. Students at Connections Academy often learn from home but they are never alone. There are even plenty of opportunities to socialize with peers both online and in-person.
Enrolling in an online school can provide your child the learning environment they need to thrive. But it’s important to know the differences between the various options so you can answer important questions like: Is Connections Academy or K12 better? And: Which school is the best fit for my child?
At Connections Academy, students of all types can find the opportunities they need to nurture their strengths, overcome their challenges, and prepare for success throughout their lives.
