ANITA — One of Iowa’s two public online-only schools is anticipating its highest enrollment to date.

Iowa Connections Academy expects more than 400 kindergarten through 12th grade students will attend their virtual school in the 2014-15 school year.

It’s the third consecutive increase in enrollment since the program started in 2012 with 220 students.

The program’s officials believe the upped numbers are due, for the most part, to better awareness.

“Familiarity with how online schooling works and probably from an overall marketing or branding stance. Iowa Connections Academy may now become more understood in a family’s home or in a school district,” said Dr. James Brauer, the program’s principal.

The University of Iowa is expecting an up in their online course enrollment, too. Officials said they could see a 10% increase this year over 2013’s online enrollment of more than 23,000 students.
