Texas Curriculum Built for Student Success
Education should help prepare students for work, college, and life. And at the foundation of a good education, you’ll find a strong curriculum. Over the years, we have developed, tested, and refined the Connections Academy virtual curriculum to ensure that it meets national and state standards as well as those set by leading educational organizations.
Texas Online Homeschool Elective Courses
Texas public school course electives are a key part of the well-rounded curriculum at Texas Connections Academy @ Houston. These stimulating online courses cover a wide range of subjects such as world languages, game design, home life, sign language, and more. Electives allow students to broaden their skills and explore new interests and talents.
Bringing School Lessons to Life
Our curriculum development team works with our talented in-house videographers, graphic designers, and computer programmers to bring the curriculum to life in a multidimensional way.
These professionals also review and select the best texts and instructional materials from leading publishers to weave into units, lessons, and activities. Then, we deliver these high-quality resources right to each student’s home online.
The resulting curriculum engages students in individual study as well as collaboration with their classmates. As a result, students learn to think independently and to work together.
