With its faculty headquartered in St. Paul, MTS Minnesota Connections Academy is a highly accountable, high-quality personalized K-12 online program that offers an alternative school experience – public school from the comfort of home. Students work with state-certified teachers via e-mail, live online lessons, text-based curriculum, webcasts, telephone conversations and more, while an adult learning coach monitors progress in the home.
Connections Academy provides personalized K-12 education that combines a proven curriculum, unique technology tools, and an extensive collection of electives, clubs and community experiences to create academic and emotional success for students.
MTS Minnesota Connections Academy is designed to meet the needs of students and their families who are looking for an alternative to the conventional public school option – those who learn at a different pace from their peers, students who want more individualized instruction, individuals living in isolated rural settings, those who want a more flexible learning schedule, or need a learning environment outside of the traditional classroom. Homebound and previously home-schooled students can also thrive in the program.
Connections Academy operates its full-time school program in Minnesota through a partnership with Minnesota Transitions Charter School.
Families interested in free online school with some similarities to home schooling, but with the support of state-certified teachers and the accountability of public education, are encouraged to learn more by calling 1-800-382-6010 or visiting www.connectionsacademy.com.
