Online Public Charter School NOW Serves Colusa County Students

California Connections Academy @ North Bay, an online public charter school serving students in grades K-12, is now accepting new students for the 2014-15 school year, its first school year. California Connections Academy @ North Bay will serve students throughout Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma and Yolo counties. The school will host a free family information session on Wednesday, May 21 in Williams at Granzella’s Inn at 391 6th St. for students and parents who want to learn more about the online program. Early enrollment is encouraged for those families who are new to virtual school.

At California Connections Academy @ North Bay, students will work with state-credentialed teachers using a high-quality curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards. Connections Academy students have access to unique offerings such as Career Technical Education (CTE) courses, the exclusive Juilliard eLearning program and several clubs. Each student’s teacher and Learning Coach—a parent or guardian that guides the student—work in tandem to create an individualized learning plan to meet their student’s learning needs and style.

During California Connections Academy @ North Bay’s free information sessions, families can meet educators and staff who will discuss the school’s individualized approach to education and answer questions about the school’s curriculum. Families unable to attend an in-person information session are encouraged to participate in one of the many available real-time online information sessions.

“The educators and staff at California Connections Academy @ North Bay look forward to bringing this innovative, high-quality online public school option to families in the North Bay area,” said Dave Souza, board president at California Connections Academy @ North Bay. “We are excited that the newest Connections Academy school in the North Bay will join the other three Connections Academy schools serving students in California, including Capistrano Connections Academy, which will be celebrating its tenth year in Southern California this fall. I encourage families to attend one of our information sessions to learn more about this education option and whether it is the right fit for their students.”

California Connections Academy @ North Bay will serve a wide array of students, from those who benefit from a flexible schedule to those who learn at a different pace from their peers or need more individualized attention. The Connections Academy education model works well for competitive athletes with rigorous schedules, previously homeschooled students, and students seeking expanded course offerings, among others. California Connections Academy @ North Bay is Connections Academy’s fourth school serving students in California, joining Capistrano Connections Academy, Central California Connections Academy and California Connections Academy @ Ripon.
