First and foremost, a quality online school is specifically designed to be online. It’s not an otherwise in-person school taught over the internet. It’s a school that’s specifically centered on a curriculum and teaching tools designed for online instruction, and it’s always working to make the online classroom experience truly engaging.
While a quality online school offers remote learning, it doesn’t feel remote. Instead, teachers connect one-on-one with students, ensuring that each student gets the differentiated instruction they need, when they need it. And the best online schools work closely with parents too, making sure they are able to stay involved and be successful in the supportive role of Learning Coach.
Nevertheless, a quality online school can be a public school. That’s the case with Connections Academy. In fact, Connections Academy has 20+ years of experience providing tuition-free public school education to K-12 students online. From its very beginning, Connections Academy has been designed by educational experts to be online, which allows it to take full advantage of what virtual school offers. And it allows Connections Academy students and parents to thrive.
