Louisiana Connections Academy (LACA) is hosting an informational session, June 26, from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. at Hampton Inn, at 2634 W. Outfitters Dr. n Gonzales.

The academy is a fully accredited, virtual public school that combines the accountability of public education, the strong parental involvement of schooling at home, and the flexibility of technology-enhanced learning. Hallmarks of the online school include an individualized education, cutting-edge technology, a proven curriculum, and highly qualified Louisiana-certified teachers. And because Connections Academy is a public school, there is no tuition. 

Louisiana Connections Academy is available to 1,000 students in grades K-12 who reside anywhere in the state of Louisiana.  

Nine statewide family information sessions were previously held in May. During the in-person information sessions, participants will discuss how virtual schooling works, the types of students a virtual education benefits, Connections Academy’s noted curriculum, the role of the family, the enrollment process, and more. Participants also will learn how Connections Academy community coordinators arrange field trips and extracurricular activities for students and parents across the state as a means of education, fun and networking with others enrolled in the school. Current Louisiana Connections Academy parents, teachers and staff may attend these sessions.

Online, synchronous information sessions with a Connections Academy representative will also be held where families can learn about Louisiana Connections Academy from the comfort of home.  There are also opportunities for parents to attend Parent-to-Parent Information Sessions, informal meetings with parents of current LACA students to learn about their experiences at LACA.  To learn more or register, go to: www.louisianaconnectionsacademy.com
