“Logging On” to Learn: Online School Students Head Back to School

Arizona Connections Academy’s first day is Aug. 3; nearly 2,000 students statewide kick off the 2015-16 school year online.

Nearly 2,000 students enrolled at Arizona Connections Academy will begin the 2015-2016 school year today, Aug. 3—receiving a high-quality public education online without leaving home. Arizona Connections Academy, a statewide, online public school that serves students in kindergarten through 12th grade, offers students the ability to attend school from anywhere there is an Internet connection by utilizing an award-winning curriculum, state-certified teachers and live, online lessons that create an interactive, real-time classroom.

Successfully serving students for more than a decade, Arizona Connections Academy has seen its student population grow statewide. While about half of the school’s students live in Maricopa County, other areas of the state have seen a marked increase in enrollment over the past year. Pinal County experienced a 30 percent increase in enrollment from 2014 to 2015, and Pima County saw a 24 percent jump in enrollment over the same time period.

“We are excited to start another school year and look forward to all that this year has to offer, from special projects to educational field trips to social festivals and events,” Kerri Wright, Arizona Connections Academy principal, said. “Arizona continues to be a trailblazer when it comes to online education and school choice, and this supportive environment fosters our school’s ongoing growth and that of our students.”
