Enrolling for the 2019–20 School Year

Each year the state of Wisconsin holds an open enrollment period when parents who do not reside in the Appleton Area School District must apply for their children to have the option to attend a virtual charter school like Wisconsin Connections Academy. 

Open enrollment for the 2019-20 school year ended at 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2019.  Starting July 1st, families can apply to WCA using the alternative application (more information will be available July 1st).  To get more information on the alternative application process click here.

To learn more about the school, WCA will be hosting information sessions both in-person around the State and online. A complete list of the information sessions and their locations can be found by going to the events page on the Connections Academy Website, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Residence of the Appleton Area School District

WCA enrolls students at the beginning of each semester. For the first semester, students are required to have a Connexus account created prior to the first day of school to be eligible for enrollment. Students are also 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 checking them off as being completed, attending virtual classes, and/or taking assessments.) 

Students enrolling for the second semester must be fully enrolled and actively participating on the first day of the semester. Students not meeting this criteria will be unable to attend during the current school year.
