Nevada Connections Academy to hold information session in Carson City

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

Nevada Connections Academy is offering parents the opportunity to learn more about this virtual public school during local information sessions. These information sessions also allow interested families to meet with the school’s certified teachers and parents with children currently enrolled in the school.

The Carson City session will be 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn Express, 4055 N. Carson St.

Local information sessions offer parents the opportunity to learn about the skilled teachers and interactive curriculum offered through NCA’s unique, comprehensive school program.

Curriculum samples also will be available and those attending will have the opportunity to get answers to any questions the may have.

The school combines the expertise and accountability of public education, the strong parental involvement of home schooling and the flexibility of technology-enhanced learning. Because it is a public school, there are no costs for tuition, fees or supplies. The school serves students in kindergarten through 12th grades.

The school loans each family a computer, reimburses them for an Internet connection and provides all curriculum materials – several large boxes of textbooks per child, workbooks and hands-on materials – that make up the core of NCA’s print-rich curriculum. NCA also supplies all of the necessary software and free technical support to ensure the computer is working properly. Each NCA student is also assigned a professional, Nevada-certified teacher to oversee learning and assess student progress.
