Georgia Connections Academy, a fully accredited provider of virtual K-12 schooling, has openings for 1,000 K-12 students for the 2013-2014 school year and invites interested parents and students to learn more about enrolling in the online schooling program.

GCA is hosting a free parent information session to answer details about the virtual school program Monday, April 15, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Hampton Inn Covington, 14460 Paras Drive.

As an online, free public charter school, students can enroll from all Georgia counties.

That is why GCA Principal Heather Robinson is encouraging students and parents to start the enrollment process as soon as possible.

“We are enrolling 1,000 additional students across all grade levels for the coming academic year,” Robinson said. “We have a waiting list as we open enrollment, so we encourage parents to get their applications in now.”

Enrollment is limited by the state Board of Education to 3,000 students at GCA for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Robinson said the tuition-free public school delivers a superior program, personalized with the freedom and flexibility to experience an online learning community from anywhere in the state.

“The combination of certified Georgia teachers, a proven curriculum, technology tools and community experiences creates a supportive and successful online learning opportunity for families and children who want an individualized approach to education,” Robinson said.
