School Overview

Connections Academy has a rich history of providing K-12 'public school at home' programs by developing full-time online charter schools within states and districts. Like many other online-learning companies, it has begun to field more requests to implement its program in brick-and-mortar schools, rather than just for individual students working in a distributed setting outside of traditional schools. In 2009, the Pro-Vision charter school in Houston faced a predicament. Founded by a former professional football player, Pro-Vision originally was organized to serve middle school boys. But when 20 of its graduating 8th graders did not want to attend a traditional high school, Pro-Vision did not have the resources to expand to serve high school students. School leaders decided to partner with Connections Academy to solve the problem. Pro-Vision's need created an opportunity for Connections Academy to take the leap into brick-and-mortar blending as a starting point for expanding a whole-school blended solution. The Vision Academy, a combination of the two institutions, opened its doors as a school within a school for Pro-Vision 9th graders in the fall of 2009 and was co-located in the Pro-Vision facility.
