With advanced technology and a rigorous curriculum, state-certified teachers work closely with students to develop individualized learning plans that nurture strengths and provide additional support in areas that need improvement. Students have frequent opportunities to socialize with their classmates and interact with their teachers in the virtual classroom, at in-person school events, and through online clubs and activities and online classroom sessions. South Carolina Connections Academy extracurricular clubs range from art and science to career prep. The school also hosts numerous field trips and in-person ceremonies, including volunteer service opportunities and a graduation ceremony, to help build community among students.
“South Carolina Connections Academy has allowed my tenth grader, Trey, to thrive in school and his personal life,” said Gaffney-based mother Laura Haddon. “The school’s flexibility has given Trey the opportunity to become more involved in his passion for agriculture and cattle breeding without sacrificing a quality education.”
