Connections Academy looks forward to new school year

Friday , August 22, 2014 - 2:24 PM




As we usher in a new school year, Utah students have exciting new opportunities to explore their potential. As principal of Utah Connections Academy, a tuition-free, online public school that serves students statewide in kindergarten through 12th grade, I am proud to offer a choice to parents and students who may be searching for a non-traditional, individualized education. Our state-certified, highly-qualified teachers have already taken the time to get to know their students and families on an individual level to better understand each student’s goals, education needs, and what excites them when it comes to learning. I’m thrilled that our staff is eager to challenge and inspire our students to reach new heights, while also encouraging them to socialize with each other through clubs and activities, regularly planned field trips and social events. Parents tell us that they appreciate the ability to choose an educational option that works best for their children, and are expressing overwhelming satisfaction with the quality of education their children receive at our online school. I look forward to a great 2014-15 school year at Utah Connections Academy, one that is rooted in school choice for families and filled with success.
