|Description:||Capistrano Connections Academy, a tuition-free K-12 virtual public school, will host an information session in Santa Clarita on Thursday, August 8, for families interested in learning about its online program and individualized approach to education. The information session will provide families with an opportunity to meet with Capistrano Connections Academy teachers and other prospective families, explore the school’s program and curriculum, and receive one-on-one enrollment help. Capistrano Connections Academy is chartered through the Capistrano Unified School District and is available to students in grades K-12 who reside in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. Families interested in virtual education can also learn how teachers interact with students in the virtual environment; about Connections Academy’s personalized learning opportunities; college preparation; socialization; the role of the parent or other Learning Coach; and the use of technology. The non-traditional learning environment can be a great fit for many types of students, including those who are significantly ahead or behind in the classroom, those who need a flexible schedule, those who learn at a different pace from their peers or need more individualized attention, and those who live in rural areas. Homebound and previously home-schooled students can also thrive in Connections Academy’s program.|
