From the Principal – Connect Charter School


Welcome to Connect Charter School. Our established, non-tuition program combines outdoor education, technology and inquiry based learning to support students in becoming extraordinary citizens. We learn to care for each other, to care for ourselves and to care for our place. We instill the confidence and capacities for students to be life-long and engaged learners who think critically and globally about how to reach solutions and solve problems in meaningful ways. Inquiry lives here and our dedicated teachers develop programming that is research informed. We strive to be innovative and to be leaders in education.

Learning at Connect is vibrant and dynamic; you can hear, see and feel the enthusiasm as soon as you walk through the hallways of our school. Our alumni return to see our staff and speak to the long lasting friendships they’ve developed, the memories from their overnight excursions, and the solid foundations the program provided them to be successful learners and engaged citizens. Our track record proves that teaching and learning through a disposition of inquiry, supported by the integration of technology and outdoor education, leads to strong academic success and wellbeing. We live up to our motto “It’s Never Just an Ordinary Day.”
