Connect Academy is a K-8  hybrid learning pathway providing a future-focused approach to teaching and learning,  blending together the best elements of an on-campus experience and online learning to offer families a flexible and modern learner-centered independent study program.
Connect Academy encourages students to explore the PUSD curriculum with their interests, strengths, and passions at the forefront while becoming a community of creative, collaborative, empowered learners.

Learning in Action

Optimal pH levels, multiage learning!

Strengths based teaching. Here, students used technology and pH ingredients to hypothesize which variables provided optimal environment for plant growth by testing and controlling different variables.  Green Our Planet curriculum is solid and forward thinking!

Multi-age Music Class

Students bring their own instruments or borrow ours, and set goals to become a musician! Highlights are: - Participate in stage set up and tear down learning equipment vocabulary - End class having written a song together and performing it. Also individually recording their own music.

Rainwater Harvesting

3rd-5th grade students learned more about water conservation and how to create a water collection system to harvest the abundance of Southern CA rainfall this December and January. They used the Design Thinking Process to ideate, prototype, create, and test their own systems using recycled materials!
