About Nexus Academy of Royal Oak

The Nexus Academy Difference

At Nexus Academy of Royal Oak, we’ve built our school from the ground up to create a positive, supportive, and attractively designed environment where our students can focus on learning:

  • Our Royal Oak high school campus is small and open by design—the warm, secure educational setting keeps students and staff connected.
  • Our specially trained on-site teachers and Success Coaches are dedicated to giving students the best academic and emotional support by way of intimate class sizes and individualized attention.
  • The virtual classes at our blended learning high school in Royal Oak let students work at the pace that works best for them and gives them even more learning resources.
  • And our holistic approach to learning includes physical fitness to help students stay focused, so you’ll find a personal trainer and state-of-the-art fitness facility.

This proven learning model has helped Nexus Academy of Royal Oak emerge as a leader in blended learning, just as Connections Academy has been at the forefront of online K–12 education for more than a decade. Our contemporary approach and environment support students in ways that typical Lansing high schools can’t match.
