Connections Academy is a perfect educational option for parents who want to be involved in the learning process of their children, but don't want to worry about choosing curriculum. Everything about the school has been wonderful and surpassed our expectations. Great curriculum, fantastic teachers, wonderful elective classes and many to choose, and the support system that is in place is stellar! You know exactly what your child is studying and can supplement lessons with field trips, books, documentaries, etc. We love it!!
My school is Connections Academy. We love this school. All the comforts of home and safety of home with out bullies or bad things inappropriately happening to your children. My child can get the best education with out all the hassles of bullies and tormentors. Actual one on one . The teachers are highly trained and very knowledgable to their students . They care. They help their students who need extra help and stay with them until they understand. All I can say is,"I wish I could've had this school for me and my older son when we were in school."Love ya SC Connections Academy! Thanks for everything. Angela Smith
My family loves SCCA because the teachers are great and really put the students first. The curriculum is very challenging and I believe it is good preparation for higher learning. This virtual school is the best because of its flexibility as well.
We love SCCA because you have the flexibility you need for everyone in the family. It's as flexible as a traditional homeschool, yet you have the help and support of a certified teacher there to help at all times, without feeling the pressure of someone breathing down your neck to get things done. The student can work at a pace that's right for them whether it be at a faster more advanced rate or a slower pace. The teachers seem to be great with working with you and so far have been very understanding of individual needs. So far we love it and would recommend CA to anyone.
I love this school! With so many problems in the local middle school in my child's area I sought out alternatives to brick and mortar public education. SC Connections Academy was the answer. My child loves it as well. The education was above and beyond what she received in her previous school and she could focus on her school work without distractions which was also a problem in her previous school. I would recommend Connections to anyone.
I am so glad we chose SC Connections Academy for our child's education. It was a bit of a struggle the first year because of the transition to a virtual school, but we believe she is prepared to do whatever she wants because of the excellent education she received. They taught her how to think, not how to pass tests. She is much more confident in her abilities and feels like her teachers were interested in her because they required her to do her best. At the local public school, she didn't really get the attention she needed. Since she was a well behaved student, they just passed her along as a reward. SCCA made her work for her grades and she feels better about herself because of it. If your are currently unhappy with your child's school, school district, or education, give Connections Academy a try. This is your kid's shot at the best possible public education, make sure it's a good one!
This school has been wonderful for my son! He has a chronic illness and is unable to attend "regular" school. Connections allows him to do his work at his own pace. Some days, he is unable to attend but can do his work when he is feeling better. His teachers are wonderful! The site is easy to use. My son is learning more than I could have imagined!
This school has totally changed my daughters life. She is happier, more active, and has less anxiety. This has been our first year with SCCA and we will be enrolling our youngest this coming year. The teachers have been wonderfully understanding. The curriculum is up to my standards and the children can work at their own pace. The flexability has done wonders for our family. I would recommend this program if you want more involvement in your childs education. You WILL be involved. You WILL be a learning coach. NOT a teacher but a helper of your student. The teachers teach and we support. It does take a bit of effort on the parents part. You cannot be uninvolved and expect results.
This is by FAR the best decision I have ever made for my kids. They were getting left behind in our local schools and I felt helpless until I heard about connections academy. The teachers are AWESOME and even gave my kids one on one time when needed. We got to work at their pace. They love it! They don't feel as pressured as they did at the local schools to rush through their work. I LOVE SCCA!!!
As with any public school, SCCA definitely has it's flaws, but for our family, the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. There is no way I would personally be able to do traditional "homeschool" as a single mom who has to work outside of the home, but this is definitely the next best thing - in many ways even better. This is our 3rd year. My 9th grader is on target to graduate after summer school of her 10th grade year in order to pursue her dreams. My middle schooler who struggles with anxiety and adhd has flourished in the home learning environment, and the support of the teachers at SCCA has been phenomenal. Highly reccomend for families who want to school at home.
This system was not very good, I like K-12 much better. The teacher's never returned my calls. My parents had to hire a private tutor. There are much better schools than scca. I am so glad we switched schools.
I would highly recommend this school! We are going on our third year with SC Connections Academy and are thrilled. The curriculum is outstanding, challenging and adaptable. The teachers, principal and staff are all fabulous! I love the fact that my kids are able to move at their own pace, ensuring that they learn the most!! My daughter was in 2nd grade but in 3rd grade math. You can focus more time on what they need help in, and push faster through the things they already know. It's awesome! This school also enables us the time to have lots of extra curriculaar activities. I love SCCA!!!!!
This is an excellent school. As a teacher, I have been amazed by the quality of instruction that my son is receiving. We withdrew him from our local public school after several situations that we found unreasonable. He has done so well in this school and has regained the self confidence he had possessed until 8th grade. The course selection is probably better than our local high school's, and he is on track for the college he wants to attend. This school is accredited by SACS CASI, which is the main accrediting organization in our area for public and private schools. We were told by our school administraction that they were not, and we would have problems readmitting our son if he wanted to return to the local public school. Just be aware that if you choose this route, your local public schools are not the place to go for information!
This is a great concept! My daughter loves this school and so do I! The curriculum is the best I have seen and my daughter used to go to a private school. I think this is the wave of the future. No building upkeeep, no buses, no lunch programs, just great teachers doing what they do best. A terrific savings of taxpayer funds.
This is the best choice we have ever made for our daughter. I am so delighted to be able to have my child in a school that has awesome teahers and well written assignments that me and my daughter can understand. She loves that she can work at her own pace and learn it, instead of being rushed to do it. This is the school for her and my other daughter when she gets older.
This school offers a great alternative that is between home schooling and public schools. They allow the children to excel at their own pace. The courses are extremely well written. Awesome program!
