As we enter our seventh school year, we are excited about our continued growth and look forward to serving both new and returning students this year.

Iowa Connections Academy, a K-12 online school serving students statewide, is now enrolling new and returning students for the 2019-20 school year. Families can begin the enrollment process now through March 1, 2019, when open enrollment closes in Iowa.

To help families learn about its online program and individualized approach to education, Iowa Connections Academy will host free in-person and online information sessions, as well as online parent panels, throughout January and February. In-person sessions will take place in Waterloo, Dubuque, Davenport, Clive and Mason City, offering families the chance to meet school administrators or teachers and ask any questions they have about the school.

“As we enter our seventh school year, we are excited about our continued growth and look forward to serving both new and returning students this year,” said Dr. James Brauer, principal at Iowa Connections Academy. “I encourage families who are considering switching to an online school model to take advantage of one of our in-person or virtual events over the next two months, as these events will help to answer any questions parents may have about our school.”

Iowa Connections Academy serves a wide array of students, from those who benefit from a flexible schedule to those who learn at a different pace from their peers or need more individualized attention. The school’s student body includes competitive athletes, previously home-schooled students and those seeking expanded course offerings.

The school offers a rigorous curriculum with innovative and diverse courses, including foreign languages, digital technology and web design, as well as Advanced Placement (AP) courses for students interested in college-level curriculum. State-credentialed teachers work with students to develop customized learning programs that are tailored to each student’s education needs while maintaining a curriculum that meets state education standards.
