Online Summer School
Flexible for Your Students, Affordable for Your School
We know that most students lose academic ground during the summer.† Yet, according to the American Association of School Administrators, more than a third of the nation’s school districts will have to consider cutting summer school this school year.
Connections Learning Summer School Programs offer an affordable way to keep summer school doors open, your course options flexible, and your students moving forward—virtually!
