Joining clubs connects students with their interests...
From arts and crafts to science and leadership, we have a club to spark the curiosity of students at all grade levels. These teacher-led clubs are a great way to encourage students to explore new interests.
Participation in these national, virtual clubs helps students feel connected to their school and to their classmates. Research proves that involvement in clubs can also improve academic achievement and graduation rates. All clubs are optional, non-credit and have no impact on student grades.
Caretakers can sign up their students for National Clubs between September 14, 2020 and April 16, 2021.

Throughout the school year, the National Clubs & Activities team offers a variety of special events. These events give students the opportunity to use their imaginations to create new things and to then share them with the Connections Academy community.
Over the summer, students submitted nature, art and gaming images to share with the Connections community.
