Programs

iConnect Academy uses online curriculum with teachers located in our school. Grades 1-12+ students and their teachers get to know each other through weekly face-to face interactions. This blended learning approach allows them to interact with peers, online and in-person, and easily get help from their teachers with especially difficult concepts or topics.

ORLA Montessori offers families: Two Children's House', a tuition-based 1/2 day a.m. Pre-k (4 by Aug. 31) combined with a full-day Kindergarten, four 1st-3rd grades, and three 4th-6th grade classrooms.

Montessori and current hConnect students moving to 7th grade have the option of enrolling in ORLA's MAST 7/8 program. The Math, Art, Science and Technology program (MAST) is for students who are seeking an integrated student-centered learning community that is focused on inquiry-based learning. Our learning community started MAST 7 in fall 2015, and added 8th grade in 2016.

As part of the Olympia Public Schools, hConnect is a school of choice supporting home-based instruction by providing enrichment classes and resources that may be difficult to provide at home for grades K-12. Our Washington certificated teachers work with families to support them in the education of their children.
