After one year of brick and mortar school this past school year, we are returning to Connections Academy for next year. The curriculum is challenging, but it is extremely well-presented and taught by teachers who provide engaging live lessons and videos. Parents also need to be aware that there is a time commitment involved with younger children, as you will need to help with some of the projects constructed, the science experiments, and the spelling quizzes, etc. Yet, our child learned so much more through this kind of hands-on experience with Connections Academy, and the teachers are great for providing support and encouragement to the students. As someone else posted, they also offer several field trips throughout the year so that the students get to interact with their teachers and their peers in person.
Connections Academy is an excellent school for families that are not well served by their local schools or by homeschooling. High quality curriculum is supplied by the school, and parent 'learning coaches' are supported through regular contact by professional teachers. My children are learning at their own pace, encouraged to dig in and really work in areas of need and allowed to demonstrate mastery - without busywork- in areas where they excel. Field trips are offered throughout the state, and IEP's are supported.
Connections Academy is a wonderful school. They allow the student to work at their own pace, therefore they can spend extra time on things they are struggling with and excel in areas of strength. Great teacher support. We love CA!
