Arkansas Connections Academy a virtual public school for students in K through 10th grades is offering parents throughout Arkansas the opportunity to learn more about this highly accountable, high-quality virtual public school during local information sessions.

Each Arkansas Connections Academy student is also assigned a professional teacher to oversee learning and assess student progress.
Arkansas Connections Academy is governed by a Board of Directors composed of Arkansas residents, while its curriculum and other services will be contracted through Connections Education, a leading provider of high-quality; highly accountable online learning that has been supporting schools for over a decade.
