    – Nevada Connections Academy parent

    “We chose Connections Academy because it is an accredited program and the support from certified teachers really was important.  With the home school program we were using, we felt we were on our own.  Now we have such a great support system with Connections Academy and we love it!”
    – Oregon Connections Academy parent

    “Connections Academy was similar to our regular homeschooling, but with the accreditation to keep the kids at the proper grade level…earning them a valid diploma at the completion of 12th grade.”
    – Oregon Connections Academy parent

    “The other home school program we considered required parents to choose and purchase curriculum based on grade requirements and then prepare lesson plans.  Having the lessons prepared and the teacher support through Connections Academy has freed much of my time to help my children with their assignments.”
