SC Connections Academy visits McKenzie Field Station.
By CINDY CROSBY
Students from the South Carolina Connections Academy (SCCA), a tuition-free online public school, traveled from across the state to participate in an engaging field trip at the Michael D. McKenzie Field Station located at Bennetts Point on Wednesday Nov. 1. The students participated in a range of outdoor educational experiences, including a marine dissection and an on-the-water marine biology lesson on the estuarine ecosystem.
“The SCCA offers students the flexibility to learn at home with a curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards while providing resources to create a well-rounded student experience,” said Kelly Carman, who was one of three SCCA teachers who coordinated the field trip. “Field trips give our students and their families the opportunity to learn together and make new friends.”
The mission of the SCCA is to “provide a personalized education for students to master the knowledge and problem-solving skills needed to achieve their college and career goals.”
