Connections Academy offers a huge variety of classes in almost any subject from photography to Spanish to classes that introduce one to the career they wish to pursue. There are also a wide variety of classes that are designed to help with preparing one for the ACT, college, or even paying taxes. In addition, the courses are offered in many levels including AP, honors, and standard. Teachers are available to help when they are needed, and many offer weekly Live Lessons via a virtual classroom.
I have been able to work at my own level and complete a lot of college credit in addition to exploring what interests me. I have had more time to discover my passions and what I wish to spend the rest of my life doing! I will always be grateful to the teachers and staff who have opened up new doors of opportunities for me and have helped me discover my dreams!
