Prospective students and their parents can also learn about Connections Academy via many social networks. Families may follow Connections Academy on Facebook and Twitter, watch videos on YouTube and read Virtual Learning Connections, the Connections Academy blog for families interested in supporting K-12 learning from home.

Louisiana Connections Academy Principal Wood encourages families considering virtual school to attend an information session because virtual education, while a great choice for many families, may not be a good fit for some. “Virtual school requires parents to make a commitment to be involved in their child’s education,” Principal Wood said. “At our information sessions, we let families know what they can expect in the virtual school setting, and what it takes to succeed. We want students to thrive at Connections Academy and understanding how it all works is essential.”

Louisiana Connections Academy delivers top-quality, personalized K-12 education that combines certified teachers, a proven curriculum, technology tools, and community experiences to create a supportive and successful environment for children who benefit from an individualized approach to education.

Louisiana Connections Academy parents praise the online school’s educational program, its exceptional certified teachers, and high quality curriculum. Said Parent Dawn Sanchez, “I love the quality of education my son receives!”
