School Notes

  • Learning about online school starts with the school experience itself. We share a common goal with parents: to ensure that students become productive, successful, and confident adults. Through our full-time virtual school, individual courses, or summer school programs, International Connections Academy helps online students build on their unique strengths and interests in a setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community of global learners. Below are a few of the driving forces behind our proven approach to learning:
  • OUTSTANDING CURRICULUM  At iNaCA, online private school students receive a great online education at an affordable price. Our virtual school courses meet or exceed U.S. standards, as well as those set by leading educational organizations. They integrate the best texts, materials, and resources available to create a curriculum that keeps students engaged in new and creative ways. And our exclusive College Acceleration Program enables students to earn college credits and reduce college tuition costs. Learn more about Advanced Placement, Career Technical Education, Honors Classes, and NCAA eligible courses.  
  • EXCEPTIONAL TEACHERS  Caring, professional teachers are the foundation of the International Connections Academy experience. They are talented, passionate, certified, and specially trained to excel in online teaching. Teachers from all across the United States are drawn to our virtual school because they care about kids and believe that personalized one-on-one instruction really works.
  • INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION  Every virtual k12 private school student has unique abilities, and all students perform better when they receive individual attention in a nurturing learning environment. These guiding principles are the foundation of iNaCAs Personalized Performance Learning approach. Using this method, teachers get to know a students learning style, skills, and interests so they can customize instruction to provide the student the best opportunity to excel. This approach also allows students to accelerate learning in areas of strength or receive extra attention in areas of weakness.
  • PARENT-SUPPORTED LEARNING  When parents take an active role in education, online students prosper. As Learning Coaches, parents have the opportunity to be closely involved in their childrens daily education. Theyre able to see real progress every day and work with dedicated teachers to keep their students on track. Parents say this involvement is one of the most gratifying aspects of the online school program.
  • EASY-TO-USE TECHNOLOGY  International Connections Academys user-friendly system, Connexus, lets online school students access a welcoming and collaborative learning experience anywhere they have an Internet connection. Parents love how easy it is to schedule lessons and access grades, too!
  • SOCIALIZATION, COMMUNITY, and FRIENDSHIPS  Learning online doesnt mean learning alone. Even in a virtual setting, students meet regularly in online LiveLesson sessions and have opportunities to share ideas, compare experiences, and have fun learning together. Our nearly 25 clubs and activities encourage students to pursue their interests, sharpen their skills, and meet new friends. And the scheduling flexibility of the program enables virtual private students to pursue and explore other extracurricular activities in their own communities!

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
