Flexible schedule, independent learning, and great teachers. Ability to be an active participant in my student's learning,

Our school is Oregon Connections Academy. Our child had been in ORCA since second grade, is now in 9th grade- They started learning computer tech in second grade and with the standard curriculum- she has always met or exceeded state standards in testing.. I believe the virtual charter curriculum is more advanced than the standard public schools and their educational approach is the future of education.

We chose Oregon Connections Academy as an alternative to our local schools for many reasons. They offer high quality curriculum, an opportunity to be more involved in our children's education, and are very supportive of both students and parents.

We are excited to start the new school year in a school that really seems to care about education! The provided materials are excellent!

Oregon Connections Academy allows me to be directly involved in my children's education. By using an on-line based school my children get to work at their own pace and I can alter the lessons to fit each child's learning style. My children greatly enjoy the "live-lessons" in the on-line meeting room, if we get stuck and need help between meetings we can contact the teacher at any time. This school offers a wide variety of clubs and elective classes, along with many field trips and gatherings each year.

We love Connections Academy! The teachers are great and the curriculum is top notch. I love that they work with each student on an individual basis and let them play to their strengths. It is a perfect blend of homeschool and online tutoring. I have three children in the school, and each have different talents and things that they are good at. This school works with each of them on their own level. Love it!

Oregon Connections Academy allows my students to learn in their own workspace, at the pace comfortable to them! The students also get to stick with a lesson until it is mastered and the staff allow for a positive experience in that learning process!

My 4th grade son loves it at Oregon Connections Academy the virtual school environment is the right fit for his learning style. The academic program is excellent and Kelly is learning so much. The teachers and staff at Oregon Connections Academy have been very supportive and available. Online schooling may not be a good fit for every family, but it sure has made a huge difference in our lives. Learning Coach

We homeschooled our kids from the onset but as they headed into Junior High and High School, we wanted to have more support in the math s and science s. Oregon Connections Academy allows us to continue educating our children from home and to have access to high-quality curriculum and helpful teachers. It has been a great choice for our family and one we will continue with through graduation.

Communication skills were so bad that we couldn't even begin to enroll our child for school here. No one called back even after we left numerous messages asking for help for enrollment. Did I mention that my kid is disabled?

ORCA was a negative experience for my 8th and 4th grader. We enrolled in April and struggled to handle the workload of five or more subjects per day every weekday. Usually, that meant 7-8 hours per day with my husband and I in front of a computer with each child and minimal breaks, if any. The teachers were nice, but not always accesible and the live lessons were on their schedule, not ours. My 8th grader's grades started to slip and both kids hated it. One reason was that the quizzes and assessments are often very short and missing one question can really matter. It is also easy to miss information when changing between window screens (this happens a lot), and in additon to the computer, there are a LOT of workbooks for gradeschoolers to do. We are always pressed for time and never get to all of the suggested work! We are changing schools next year and would have sooner except that we had relocated and hadn't moved into our own home yet so we are riding this frustrating experience out as best we can.

My freshman daughter is finishing her first term in ORCA. Each student is different and no one school is right for everyone. We choose ORCA to have a quality college prep curriculum, more accountability on my daughters part, less immersion in the stress and drama of the public high school. It has been hard at times. It is a demanding curriculum. It requires students to be pro-active in figuring out what is expected and how to achieve those expectations. I love that I can see what she is working on and when it gets done. She can see the direct results of her efforts. No guess work about grades, they are posted immediately upon submitting an assignment most of the time. She can set goals, see whats left to accomplish, pace herself. The next term will be smoother and she will be more efficient in how she uses her time. She is learning how to be successful with online courses, essential for college. All in all it is pretty good. It would be nice to use the technology for more online interaction between classmates to learn collaboration and group dynamics.

I am in love with Connection's Academy! The curriculum is stellar and the materials are immaculate. My son was given the opportunity to work through an entire grade level in half of the time, and is now a grade level ahead. If you want to instill a productive work-ethic in your child, teach your child to be a self-motivated learner, allow your child to be autonomous, AND, most importantly, have a challenged and thorough work environment, then this is the program for you. A word of warning to those not interested in interacting with your child's learning: Connection's teachers are fantastic -- they assess student's needs, grade work, provide online lessons -- but as you as the parent are in charge of implementing school work. In my opinion, spending a few hours a day coaching my child is a small price to pay for an education.

We are looking forward to starting our 4th year with ORCA this fall. My son will graduate High School from Connections at the end of that year. His academic performance has improved night and day since he was in the brick and mortar schools the previous 9 years - he went from B/C grades in middle school to A/B consistently in his last 3 high school years with ORCA, and he really understands his subjects. My daughter was not being challenged in the brick and mortar schools, but now she is 2 years ahead in math and excelling in all subjects with straight A's, even at a grade level ahead for her age. They have made great friends through ORCA and no more bullying or classroom distractions. This school is a no brainer if you want more involvement in your child's education and want them to succeed academically with a challenging curriculum, so that they will probably be way ahead of other students when they get to college as well.

We love Connections Academy! We will be starting our 3rd year this fall and our children are excelling in all areas. They can work at their own pace and both are a full year ahead in math. Their schedules are flexible so they aren't rushing to complete assignments and can do their best work. The teachers are amazing and really go the extra mile to help our children accomplish all their goals. My kids have been in public brick and mortar school and we have homeschooled, but Connections Academy is the best choice we ever made. We love being hands on with their education, it brings our family even closer together and we know they are getting a great education. We love all the field trips and social gatherings. The parents and kids in our area have become good friends.

Love, love, love Connections Academy!!! I have tried public school with both my kids but they learned so much more when home schooled through connections! I love the materials, the online classroom set-up, the teacher lectures, flexibility, communication boards, field trips....I could go on and on! But the big reasons I choose ORCA is because the public school system failed my kids. They were bullied, overlooked, forgotten and allowed to pass year after year without learning what they should have been learning each year. My son was so sad everyday he went to public school. Now, with ORCA, he is soooooo very happy!! As a mom there is nothing better than seeing your child happy and smiling!! Public, brick and mortar school....never again!

If you want to be involved with you childs learning and actually know that they are learning this is " THE" best choice of online charter schooling you could ask for. I am so pleased to have chose to have my daughter enrolled with them. There courses tend to be a little hard but it depends on the class. If you get stumped a phone call or email to the teacher and they will explain to you how to teach it and when your child is on an IEP they will help you shorten the work for your child and make it easier for them to understand. I love Connection's and am so blessed that they have them as a choice for school. I wished they were around when I was in school,...

This is our first year with ORCA, and I almost withdrew my 3rd grade daughter within the first few months. It has been a struggle to get her to be responsible for her workload and time management. Now for the positives: great support from her teacher and other parents, challenging curriculum, and freedom to pursue other activities. When I was struggling to get my daughter to do her work, her teacher and other parents offered many different ideas. No criticism, just help. My daughter is finally challenged! Last year, at the local school, she did her week's homework on Monday's bus ride home. Now, we take her schoolwork with us, and she's able to move at her own pace. The last positive is the one I really like- flexibility to pursue other activities. She is able to take lessons at times other kids are unavailable, and often comes to school with me. My other two school-age children are in the local public schools, and are thriving. ORCA has been more work on my part than I had expected, but my daughter is thriving because of ORCA.

This is my daughter's third year with Connections; she is graduating this year. She loves the school, and has learned so much more than she ever learned in the traditional bricks and mortar school! She loves the teachers, and they're always quick to answer her questions. And, not only is more content covered in every class, she's also able to take classes that wouldn't be offered locally, like 3-D art, and German. She's able to work more efficiently in this setting, enabling her to have more time for outside activities than she ever had in the traditional system.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
