Nexus Academy opens enrollment for 2014-15

(Continued)

All Nexus Academy of Indianapolis students are provided with a mobile computer and other technology tools, allowing them to work anywhere at any time.

Nexus Academy Principal Jamie Brady notes that it’s important for families considering a blended school to attend an information session.

“At an Information session or Shadow Day, families really get a feel for what to expect and what’s involved in a blended education so they can determine if it’s the best fit for their student,” Brady said. “Planning ahead, and understanding how it all works is essential to ensuring the academic and emotional success of students enrolled at Nexus Academy of Indianapolis. We strongly encourage families to attend one of our information and enrollment events.”

Prospective students and their parents can also learn more about Nexus Academy via many social networks: Facebook, YouTube, and Virtual Learning Connections, a blog for families interested in supporting K-12 learning from home.

Nexus Academy is the city’s first specially designed blended high school, and it looks like no other school in town. The school features a campus setting designed by using the latest research about how today’s teens learn. Following a design custom-created by Godshall Kane Architects LLC, a Pennsylvania-based firm that specializes in school spaces, the campus includes “team” areas with casual seating for both collaborative and individual work, seminar-style classrooms where students meet with teachers in small groups, hands-on science and art labs.

Nexus Academy is at 6101 N. Keystone Ave., Ste. 302, Indianapolis.

The Indiana Charter School Board unanimously approved Nexus Academy of Indianapolis for the 2013-14 school year. The school is operated by an independent, non-profit charter school board known as Better Blended Learning for Indiana, with its curriculum and other services provided by contract from Connections Learning, a division of Connections Education (www.ConnectionsEducation.com), a leading provider of online and blended learning, which is accredited by AdvancED.
