I love the convenience of Connections Academy, but most of all the curriculum is great for my 5 year old in Kindergarten. It has fun activities, and is much more advanced than a regular school. They have great field trips planned, and many other clubs and activities. The world is high tech, why shouldn't school be?

Connections Academy (Utah Connections Academy) I really enjoy the scheduling freedom it allows. My daughter is getting an excellent education and is still able to focus on her talents in dance and music without making her schedule too tight. The teachers are amazing and offer way more support than we have heard of from other public schools. Definitely check out Connections Academy. :) There are way to many benefits to mention in this post.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
