Louisiana Connections Academy Hosts Back-to-School Party

Posted: Updated:
 ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- More than one thousand kindergarten through 12th grade students will have their first day of virtual school in one week. The Louisiana Connections Academy hosted a back-to-school party at the Alexandria Zoological Park. The get-together was a chance for prospective and current students and parents to meet with faculty.


Since classes are offered online, the faculty of the Louisiana Connections Academy recognize the importance of personally meeting students before the school year begins.


"It forms a bond, between the parents and the teachers and the students; that, because we do a lot of telephone, live lesson, so, our students, when they're able to met their teachers, They just have that connection, when we talk to them, or when we have instruction over live lesson," Says Shelly Centanni, of the Louisiana Connections Academy.


The virtual school is tuition free, and spots are still open for the 2014-2015 school year. For more information on virtual school, visit www.louisianaconnections.com.
