Full-time, tuition-free, virtual public school offers innovative school choice for 6th, 7th and 10th Grade Students
A limited number of enrollment spots are available for the 2019-2020 school year at Georgia Connections Academy, a statewide tuition-free virtual public charter school that provides education to students in grades 5-12.
“Georgia Connections Academy is a flexible school option for families seeking an individualized approach to education,” said Brazilia Page, Georgia Connections Academy executive director. “It’s particularly helpful for students who are actors or athletes and frequently travel, students whose parents have jobs that require a great deal of travel, and students with physical disabilities that make sitting in a classroom for eight hours a day difficult. Sometimes families are just looking for a different option for their children, and we provide a great choice for them.”
The registration deadline is Friday, Feb. 7, and the last day for document submission is Tuesday, Feb. 11.
Page said parents who may need to switch schools for their kids are encouraged to apply now. Enrollment is only available for the 6th, 7th and 10th grades and is on a first come/first served basis until the capacity of 4,750 total students is reached. Once the cap is met, applicants completing all enrollment tasks will be placed on a waiting list based on space availability in the student’s grade and the task completion date.

Georgia Connections Academy also offers a virtual school tour and several online sessions from a family who chose an online school. They will answer questions and share information how online school transformed learning for their family, what it’s like, and what it means to be a Learning Coach. The 45-minute, parent-led sessions are at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22; Monday, Jan. 27; and Wednesday, Jan. 29.
