Indiana Connections Academy
Develops grit: Strongly agree

INCA has a core belief that every student can learn and provides every resource, help and encouragement needed to do so. Teachers will stick with a student and work with them how ever long it takes to master a concept.

Students often discuss/critique each other's work and are expected to always be respectful. Students will even call each other out if they are not.

Yes. Students must adhere to an honor code since no one is looking over their shoulder while taking an assessment. However, the teachers will know immediately if cheating occurs and the student will be reprimanded. We have never personally dealt with that, but the school rigorously teaches honesty, integrity and fairness in everything.

We are in our 3rd year with INCA and love it. The curriculum is flexible so that each child can learn in the way that suits them best whether that be via a video, reading it in a book, doing a worksheet, interactive problems, watching a recording of the teacher or one of many other methods. Each child also learns at their own pace so if a concept comes easily, they move on and avoid boredom. If they are struggling with something, they stay on that lesson until they get it so no one gets left behind. The teachers are helpful and eager to provide support, encouragement and suggestions anytime you need it. The curriculum is great because it teaches each subject more in depth than a traditional brick and mortar school has time to. Obviously, students learn valuable technical/computer skills right along side traditional subjects. In addition to all of this, kids learn real life skills like time management, organization and responsibility as these are essential if you are to be successful in the virtual environment.

Teachers take a genuine interest in helping the students succeed. They KNOW their students and offer as much help as the student is willing to ask for.

Amount of homework: Just right

Because students are not tied to traditional school hours, they are able to complete the assignment before moving on to the next class, thus eliminating homework. Students will still study as long as traditional schools (class + homework combined) but it doesn't have to be broken up and allows for a better flow for the student.

Absolutely! They create many modes of learning so that each child may succeed. They encourage students and find multiple ways to teach a concept until a student can move on with confidence.

Because the teacher is not always the disciplinarian in a virtual school, it allows the students to enter a judgement-free zone and create a relationship based on friendship first. Teachers, while they do help parents and learning coaches with behaviors in the home during school time, primarily get to teach and encourage the students in a fun, interactive way.

The teachers here know their students very well. They talk with them over the phone, see them in live lessons (sometimes via webcam), provide valuable feedback on assignments, send postcards to welcome students, hold 'door prize' drawings for live lesson times, and attend many field trips to see students in person. They hold special show-and-tell live lessons or meet the class live lessons where students will send in info and pictures and the teacher creates a powerpoint for all to participate in. They really put thought into how students can get to know each other and their teachers in a virtual environment.

The school really reinforces rules for academic honesty & integrity by training the students thoroughly in how to complete their work independently. The school does a wonderful job making accommodations for students who need it and spending one-on-one time with students who are struggling to enable each student to succeed. The provide an incredibly fair opportunity for all students to rise to the top.
