ONLINE SCHOOL ENROLLMENT FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR

To learn more about the school, WCA will be hosting information sessions. A complete list of the information sessions can be found by going to the events page on the Connections Academy Website, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Resident students and students who apply during the standard open enrollment period are required to be fully enrolled and actively participating in the curriculum by the third Friday in September. Actively participating in the curriculum is defined as completing lessons and marking them as completed within their student’s Education Management System, attending virtual classes/LiveLessons, and/or taking assessments.

During the first semester of the school year, WCA may enroll students who did not apply during the standard open enrollment period, using the alternate application process. (Refer to section labeled "Students Who Live Outside the Appleton Area School District" below.) 

WCA enrolls resident and nonresident students at the beginning of the first and second semesters. These students must be fully enrolled and actively participating on the first day of the semester. Students in grades 4K-12 who apply using an alternative application for the first semester are required to be fully enrolled and actively participating in the curriculum within fifteen (15) days of acceptance by the Appleton Area School District.

Students who wish to attend WCA for a second semester must be fully enrolled and actively participating on the first day of the second semester. Resident and nonresident students who are not fully enrolled and actively participating on the first day of the second semester will not be able to attend Wisconsin Connections Academy for the current school year.
