We understand that comparing education options can be stressful, confusing and
time-consuming. Getting the real scoop from other parents using each option can
be a valuable resource in your decision-making process so
we recently compiled some enlightening feedback from
homeschool parents who chose Connections Academy that may help you!
Here's what our parents had to say:
"We have had a very positive experience with
Connections Academy from the start. It is amazing to me how much is provided--and
at no cost! The computer and the books are of great quality, as is the
curriculum (I know because I looked at so many in my research!). The lesson
plans and the learning management system are easy to follow and very informative.
We love the flexibility of the scheduling that provides just enough structure to
allow us to follow a schedule that fits with the rhythm of our day and any other
commitments we have or want. The best part is that I don't have to spend so
much of my time making lesson plans and coming up with projects and activities
to stimulate learning--it's all spelled out for me. And I know it is meeting
the standards of the school district. It is also nice to be able to just be
"Mom" and a Learning Coach and not the teacher! Additionally, the teachers,
staff, and tech support have always been accessible and helpful. Overall, it has
been a great experience!"
~ Michela Leighton, Connections Academy parent
"The curriculum of Connections Academy is the highlight for me. I had home
schooled my son in the 1st grade and I had to set up the curriculum myself which
took a lot of time and I wasn't entirely confident. Connections Academy provides
a clear expectation of the daily schedule and upcoming lessons. I also enjoy
that the materials, books, etc. are all high quality!"
~ Sandra Noon, Connections Academy parent
"Socialization is a big part of Connections Academy. I am very involved with
other parents, keeping in contact with them and offering as much support as
possible. There are a lot of field trips and social gatherings for families
to take part in. There is also a message board for parents to keep in touch,
ask questions or offer suggestions to one another. My daughter works very hard
and receives so much support from teachers, parents and peers. She is a
happy child and loves this school. My entire family is so grateful to have
found Connections Academy."
~ Lori, Connections Academy parent
We wanted to home-school our children but had no idea where to start. After
having our daughter in public school for 2 years, and not being satisfied with
what she was learning and the progress she was making, we decided we needed to
get serious about home schooling. I talked to friends that had home-schooled and
heard what they had to say. I looked at the online schools, and decided to
enroll in Connections Academy. I have been so pleased with the progress my
daughter has made. Her teacher has been amazing. I love that I have a
support to go to when I have questions and am not just out there on my own
somewhere trying to figure everything out as we go along.
- Natalie Carpenter, Connections Academy parent
Connections Academy allows my family the flexibility we need while providing
my children with a first class education. I am a licensed teacher
experienced with elementary and middle school curriculum and instruction.
Connections Academy uses the best course materials and teaching methods
available. They use the materials I would select if I had access to every
publishing company in the US. In fact, the elementary reading and math programs
utilized by Connections Academy are the same programs I recommended as a member
of a school district textbook selection committee. My students find these
materials highly engaging. In fact, my 3rd grade student has made more progress
in 3 months at Connections Academy than she had made in one year of home school
with materials that were available to me.
Shellie Sarah Patterson, Connections Academy parent
We have 4 children enrolled in Connections Academy. This is our 5th year
in the program and have loved every minute of it. I originally enrolled my
oldest children because of large class sizes in our school district. I had only
planned on homeschooling them until the overcrowding issues were resolved. I
also taught public school and wanted my children to have more individualized
instruction and attention. I chose Connections Academy because I wanted to
make sure my children were meeting the standards and learning what they
needed to at each grade level. I was so impressed with the
curriculum, the teachers, and the program itself, that we never left.
My children have excelled in their learning and take a real ownership in working
independently. One of our closest friends is an elementary school
principal and he continually tells us that he wishes they had some of the
programs we are doing.
