Students who are looking for a more flexible way to experience high school than the traditional brick-and-mortar school are finding it for free.

Georgia Connections Academy, an accredited, public, virtual charter school open to students from every county of the state, has openings for 1,000 additional high school students in all grades, said Principal Heather J. Robinson.

"We are excited about these openings, but it is also late in the enrollment game," Robinson said in a prepared statement. "Therefore, if your child is not happy with their school assignment or if virtual schooling would help your student excel in the 2014-2015 school year, contact us now."

Information sessions are scheduled throughout the state and online. To find the session nearest you or most convenient for your schedule, go to or call the school at (678) 825-3258.

Georgia Connections Academy is a K-12 school where all instruction and classes occur online. More than 3,000 students were enrolled in the free public school last academic year. The academy was featured Tuesday on Better Mornings Atlanta.
