The Commonwealth Connections Academy (CCA) is a public online charter school located in the US state of Pennsylvania. CCA is partnered with the private Connections Academy to provide a full K-12 curriculum. As needed, students receive free textbooks and computer equipment (including a subsidy for Internet service). A designated learning coach (e.g. parent or guardian) oversees home-based learning.

In 2009, there were 3,500 students in attendance. 365 seniors graduated from Commonwealth Connections Academy in 2011.
