Why did TEC partner with Connections Learning?

Sometimes a student may not be able to attend school due to an unexpected absence caused by a medical or other issue but may want to continue their studies by taking up to 4 courses online.

TEC has partnered with Connections Learning to offer a comprehensive core curriculum of online courses taught by highly qualified teachers so that even if a child cannot physically attend school, he/she can still fully participate in a rigorous academic program with his/her peers.

Ask your guidance counselor for additional information about how to register for TEC Online Academy courses.
