How will you improve your child's education for the 2011--12 school year? Choosing the right option for your child's education is a big decision. You want to find the perfect learning solution to provide academic and emotional success. You dream of providing the highest quality education from home allowing your child to learn at his or her own pace in a safe learning environment that you can be involved in each day.

How can you enjoy less stress and more success?

Connections Academy offers fully-accredited, award-winning, public school from home for students in grades K--12. It's tuition-free with a proven curriculum that emphasizes mastery of core subjects from the best resources available today!

Best of all, Connection Academy's state-certified, caring
teachers will build a close relationship with you and your student(s) as they handle instruction, grading, testing, conduct real-time lessons online and personalize a learning plan for your student. With Connections Academy, the parent or other responsible adult at home is the Learning Coach
, working closely with teachers to keep your student on track.

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.

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.
