Tustin Connect is a tuition-free public school and is part of the Tustin Unified School District. Enrollment is open to all K-12 students in Orange County, CA. Tustin Connect provides a flexible, rigorous, innovative and personalized education experience from elite athletes and childhood actors to students that struggle with the demands of the traditional comprehensive school setting.
Flexible – Our non-traditional setting provides students with various interests and needs the flexibility required in their weekly schedule. With our online blended independent study model, students engage in online learning while having access to certificated teachers.
