The Connections Learning Blended Learning Model

Affordably Expanding Your School's Resources

Students discussing notesAsk any teacher: today’s students learn differently, and schools must adapt in order to produce the academically successful, college- and career-ready young adults that our communities and nation so urgently need. At the same time, too many of our young people are dropping out or failing out of their traditional schools. To get back on track, they need an option that is flexible in time and place but unyielding in its high expectations. A “blended learning” program can help schools, districts, and other academic institutions address this urgent concern.

Nexus Academy provides students with a unique blend of online and classroom learning with personalized learning plans and a challenging curriculum featuring Advanced Placement and Honors level courses in Mathematics, Science, Language Arts, Humanities and Social Studies.

Our Blended Learning Model also provides a unique 21st century K–12 education option including the curriculum, the instructional tools, and expert online teaching staff you need. You set the schedule and then allocate the space, face-to-face professional or paraprofessional staff, and student hardware to facilitate the classes.

Together, we design and deliver a blended program that fits your students’ needs and leverages your school’s resources. (We  also do complete turn-key blended charter or contract schools.)  Our Blended Learning Model can be integrated into your existing program or a full platform that can be initiated as a stand-alone academic experience.
