University View Academy, the state’s leading provider of high-quality, free public online charter schooling for grades K through 12, kicks off the 2017 school year on Monday, August 14.
“We cannot wait to welcome back our students,” said UView Superintendent Lonnie Luce. “This is a new, exciting era for our school and we are very eager to provide our students maximum development in their education.”
The school, formerly known as Louisiana Connections Academy, will open for the first time as an independently operated charter school with a MacBook-based program at its expanding headquarters in Baton Rouge. The headquarters houses teachers and administrators, but classes are offered completely online over a student’s computer, supplied by the school.
This is also the first year the school, which recently celebrated one of the highest increases in its student-passage rate of Advanced Placement exams, will offer high schoolers the chance to earn an associate’s degree from one of Louisiana’s community colleges, along with their high school diploma.
Enrollment is still available for the 2017-2018 school year for all grades, but spots are limited. For more information, call (225) 421-2900 or visit www.UniversityView.Academy.
