    California Connections Academy is such an amazing schooling option for students. It is a tuition free school where students work online from the comfort of their homes. It provides a safe environment for students to learn at their own pace. As a 6th grade Language Arts teacher I love this option for students who have a parent who can be home with the student and serve as the learning coach to help keep students on a schedule and encourage and help students to reach out to their teachers when they get stuck or need help. This school has teachers that are state credentialed. They are highly educated teachers that bring learning to life for their students through fun webinar like sessions for the students. I love that their teachers are accessible during school hours by phone, texting, and email. They are constantly monitoring student progress and providing help and making sure the students are understanding and learning. This is a great school!

    I loved attending this school! I started in 8th grade and stayed all through highschool. It was flexible to fit my competitive schedule and the teachers always took the time to help you when it was needed. Even after graduating, the school continues to help me with any questions I have about my transcripts and makes it easy for me to send them where they need to go - this is appreciated because it has not always been my experience with other schools. Overall, my experience with California Connections Academy was great and I would recommend them to anyone who needs flexibility in their schedule and who tends to be self driven.
    This school is awesome! It's a great fit for various types of students and meets the needs of students across the academic board. All of the teachers are credentialed and readily available to help answer any questions that may arise. There are many opportunities to socialize with other students as there are various clubs for the older grades as well as Live Lessons where students meet with their teachers and peers. Many people also enjoy the freedom of doing school work from home.
