Nine five star ratings on August 27th, 2013. this appears to be loading the deck or a concerted effort to boost a rating. Connections Academy should do more to offer parents to rate, both good and bad on their site. GA Cyber academy suffers from some of the same issues. There is no easy way to use technology with limited teacher support, then comply with all the policies of the state of GA.

Terrible school. Teachers take weeks to grade work, only offer live classes to those that "need help" while other students are forced to teach themselves complex subjects such as chemistry and geometry. My daughter was a 10th grader and a former Honors Student upon entry. Due to poor teaching ethics and strategies she struggled just to make a "C." Not because the curriculum was so advanced but because teachers took so long to respond to questions and to grade her work. Also, the website to turn in work always "glitches," and every Monday she would have an excess of 20+ assignments to "complete" even though she submitted them on time the prior week . This caused extreme stress and anxiety for her and threw her into a depression. I pulled her out after the Christmas break and enrolled her into our local public school where she was way behind. Again, this was due to their "not-si-advanced" curriculum. It also took them almost 2 months to send her transcript so she received her report card from the public school with "Incomplete" in every subject lowering her GPA even more. The software used is outdated and never worked. Your student cannot work at their own pace at all!

One of the best options out there. YES. You do have to take time out of your day to ensure your children are learning. NO. You cannot expect to sit down and do nothing as a parent. If you want to be active in your children's learning and you want your children to have challenging classwork and top notch classes, then this is the school for you. If you think that the brick and mortar schools are too challenging and to demanding, don't make a switch to this school. There is a strong emphasis on technology and learning that your will not see in any school except private. My children are highly intelligent and the classes they take are very demanding. As a parent though, you need to be prepared to keep an eye on your children to keep them from goofing off. Any kid will goof off if given the opportunity, even the ones with parents who do not think that they would. Being online constantly makes that even more likely. I keep my children in my home office where I can see both their computer screens.

My son is in 8th grade and my daughter is in 6th. If you are considering GACA for your kids, be prepared to be their FULL TIME teacher. I just withdrew my kids after two weeks and I put them back into their brick and mortar school. When I withdrew them, nobody even bothered to ask me why. I even emailed the Assistant Principal to inform her and she never responded. There is entirely too much dependency from the staff on emails. Each child has 7-8 teachers and they ALL send way too many emails to keep track. They need to jump into the 21st century and develop a business model that allows them to place Live Lessons, field trips, study groups, etc. directly onto the kids' calendars so the parents don't have to sort through what is optional, what is mandatory, and the rest of their unorganized madness. I never once heard from my son's homeroom/math teacher when their own policy is for the homeroom teacher to call to welcome us and then contact us at least once a week for a temperature check. My son and I sent her emails repeatedly with read receipts attached, and she read all of them and never responded. I'm so disappointed in the time, effort, and money I invested in this.

Excellent as an alternative learning environment. My son has migraines and as they grew out of control in the 6th grade (6 days a week), he went from a straight A student to being totally lost. He was unable to attend school most days and unable to pay attention if he had a migraine while attending. He told me that he had no way of catching up and thus his frustration level was immense which caused more tension and more migraines. Georgia Connections allowed him to work at his own pace without the pressure alleviating some of the migraines. It is a well organized school. The teachers and admin staff are excellent. The level of education is phenomenal. It is a form of home schooling and requires learning coach(parent) involvement. It is state funded and should have been recommended by the local school as they realized that their situation was not working for him. Shame on them. Georgia Connections is a God-send and has been a saving grace for us.

I was misled by what this school offers for elementary aged children. I thought it would be primarily taught by the teacher, but it's solely on the parent or learning coach. We may reconsider when my children are older and more independent so they can manage their school work schedule better.

GACA is a great school for all types of students - special learners to gifted students; professional artists, dancers and athletes. The flexibility to work at your own pace and to complete work when it is convenient for you. The administrators and teachers are tech oriented with a hands on, personal approach. We love GACA.

Georgia Connections Academy not only is a great school but it offers more opportunities for students to have more one on one help, the flexibility to make your child's schedule and most important their safety. In most mortar and brick public schools children are not able to get the help they need because teachers have over crowded rooms, and the children are expected to learn too much in a short amount of time, in my opinion. My children can do school in the comfort of our home and I have peace of mind that if they need help I am there to give it to them. Not only that but their safety is a big concern these days and I rest easier knowing my children are not in any danger. I LOVE GA Connections Academy!!!!!

I love the Georgia Connections Academy. It is very structured and interactive. Even though my daughter doesn't see her teacher everyday, they are a phone call or email away. They offer practically everything a traditional brick and mortar school does, including social events were students can meet with their teachers and other students. Online schools are not limited in the extracurricular category either. They offer sports, science & technology, and visual & performing arts, all free of charge. I especially love that the visual & performing arts is sponsored by The Julliard School in New York, my hometown. GACA has proven to be a higher and richer source of education and I'm glad my daughter is a part of it!!!

My school is super wonderful and fulfills all of my needs including allowing me to be at home teaching my kindergartener this year. I love using the workbooks just like i did when I was in school. I really super enjoy the interactive videos, games, and tools they supply for us as learning coaches. This has been the absolute best experinece 2 weeks into the year. The software they use to grade is up to the minute with progress reports and I get to see teacher comments on things he turns in. They pay for me to send portfolios and provide the envelope with the address already on there which saves me time and money and its a joy for my 5 year old to take it to the mailbox for his teacher to get and grade later. I also love the ease of submitting portfolios online. We are well pleased with how our teacher has her own space during live lessons but is monitored by staff vs doing it out of their home. We met our teacher at a dibels event and she was just lovely. We played at the park with other students in our area so the playground was filled with kids and parents. I look forward to our welcome event in Rome which consist of ice cream which is my sons favorite food of course. We love GACA

We came from a public school and I chose this school because I was looking for a good home school option for my two boys. The teachers have been wonderful but the work load is SO much! We have been working from 9 am to sometimes 4 or 5 in the afternoon. We have very smart children who loved school but they are beginning to dread the work everyday. (K and 3rd grade) It is grueling! Unfortunately, we will be making a change soon!

I wish we would have heard about this fine institution much earlier. We came from private Montessori School. Spent a ton of money and were under the impression that our children got the best education on the planet. Wrong! When we started, it was a huge change and learning curve. This was also the time, when we realized that our girls were so far behind with their learning. The first four weeks were very overwhelming, but thanks to the wonderful teachers, administrators, staff and Tech Support, life became so much easier. Any one at the school is always available for you and your child. The teachers are highly qualified and compassionate! WE LOVE CONNECTIONS ACADEMY!!!

After moving to southwest Georgia from the metro- Atlanta area, my child felt as though she didn't fit in her new school environment. I looked at other options and chose homeschooling with Connections Academy. We are very satisfied with the curriculum and the overall flexibility that Connections offers us. Thank God for Connections Academy!

My girls have attended Georgia Connections for 3 years now. The staff and teachers are wonderful, they make sure we are following the Georgia state standards while keeping in fun in an at home learning environment. We have an array of Fieldtrips and activities to chose from so their social life is not being left in the dust! GACA is the best choice for my girls!

I love my school, Georgia Connections Academy, it is the best! The staff is there when you need them. The teachers help you whenever you need help. You can learn at the pace you want to. It is the best charter school there is. Its way better than the traditional brick-&-morter schools. You can adjust your schedual to your prefrences and there are even special academics you can sign up for! Plus you have other students you can enteract with. The first week of school my teachers called and made sure i had everything I need to have a successful school year. They even offer plans to help you decide your future and they offer scholarships so we can go to college!!! I recomend this school to everyone. Just in the past two years alone the student size had tripled. They have lots of teachers to meet this demand and they keep on getting better! This school sends out text books to the individual student from grades K-8th. I think this school could improve some if they had the money to buy high school textbooks and supply them to the high schoolers like they do the other grades. This is the most amazing school ever! I hope lots more people hear about this school and sign up. It is awesome:)

This is our second year in Georgia Connections Academy and we are loving it. The teachers and staff are great and help with any problems we may be experiencing. I have never seen my kids more excited about attending any other school like they are with this one. It gives our kids freedom to complete their lessons in the privacy of our home without any distractions or interruptions that they may have in a regular school environment. My kids are making good grades and enjoying learning. They are also making a lot of new friends from many other communities. This school is awesome.

We happened upon Connection purely by accident 3 years ago and I can not tell you how wonderful it has been for my son and our entire family as a whole. We live in a not so great area of Gwinnett County Georgia, with a not so stellar choice of public schools and we are a just barely making it family of 4 with me being a stay at home mom, so private schools were out of the question as well. We decided we would give Connections Academy a year and see how it went. Well we are on year 3 and can not say enough about the education we are all getting! The teachers are READILY available if needed, the field trips are great for both socialization and education. The live lessons are challenging and fun, yet the interruptions that are every day in a brick and mortar school do not really exist, so they are spending the time LEARNING!! We have a 4 year old girl who is also learning a lot from her brothers live lessons. Amazing what is absorbed by children when you are not actively trying to teach them something. Given the fact that I am my son's "learning coach" means that I am relearning all that was taught to me years ago. And we are learning that school can be fun.
