I loved that ACA allowed me to complete my course work at my own pace. I was always able to work ahead and teachers were always understanding when I was falling behind. The instructors were very helpful and readily available for any questions I had. Text books and class materials were sent to my door before each school year, free of charge. This online school is incredible. The only thing I wished they had were more options when it came to class electives. However, after I graduated, I saw that they now offer more classes than ever!

I have really enjoyed attending Arizona Connections Academy. The courses are challenging, the teachers are available, and the schedule is flexible. The resources available to me are clear and unlimited. My counselor has helped me an endless number of times with various college application/readiness questions. The choice to take my education online was one of my best!
I have been going to Arizona Connections Academy (ACA) since I was in fourth grade. I am in my second part of my Juinor year in Highschool. I have to say that this is the best school. I might be a little bias due to the fact that I have been going to ACA for my whole academic career. Most of the classes have a tougher curriculum versus other schools. What I like about this school is that you can start at 8 in the morning and be done by one. Overall, every teacher I have had are amazing. They really like to get to know you personally. I have known one teacher since middle school and she is a family friend now. For the clubs, I do have to say they could improve them. I would suggest finding local clubs to take part in instead. The most important thing I like is they offer honor and AP courses. I really enjoy this as I am a straight A student and take all Honors and AP classes.
