About Ohio Connections Academy

Ohio Connections operates under the umbrella of the nation-wide Connections Academy online educational network. Since Connections Academy’s founding in 2001, it has provided an integrated form of free public school that students attend from home.

Ohio Connections Academy puts a particular focus on connecting its students: not just to academics, but to other students and families. Family members are encouraged to take an active role in the dynamic learning community where students interact with teachers and classmates in real-time, online classrooms. Online students have the opportunity to meet classmates face-to-face at school-sponsored clubs, activities, and field trips throughout Ohio, and engage in lively discussions and project collaborations with other students online. Teachers are always available to provide support through telephone sessions and individualized online sessions.
