    California Virtual Academy is a great option for homeschooling. I have been in both brick and mortar schools and homeschooling programs and CAVA gives the best flexibility by far. As a student, you are given the flexibility to get ahead or catch up if you are behind your classes. You are still given the option to take Advanced Classes such as Honors and APs, and they do monthly fieldtrips to meet with fellow students. CAVA gives me the flexibility to attend community college as a high school student without receiving as much stress compared to going to a brick and mortar school. All my teachers are extremely kind and communicate well; they offer office hours for students to ask for help or communicate any concerns. CAVA’s staff continually strives to help you to get into your ideal college and updates you with your highschool path. Overall, with my experience with two other homeschooling programs, I would highly suggest CAVA to anyone who is looking towards the homeschooling path.

    I loved the fact that I got to learn how to do independent learning. Although it was challenging at first, all the teacher were extremely supportive about everything and helped me through the learning process. A change I would like to see would be the "class connect" sessions, a time where we "enter" a classroom to learn from our teachers. It would be nice to be able to see all of our classmate's faces so that the session feels more interactive. I believe this will help us to pay better attention. Even so, with everything taken into consideration, k12 is just an overall amazing "homeschooling" program. The lessons provided by are relatively up-to-date in comparison to "normal" public schools. Plus they give you free equipment such as computers and microscopes. All in all, I highly recommend k12. A friendly reminder though, the first 1~2 years may or may not be hell. It all depends on the person. But it's fine after that.
    I think CAVA is a great school. It's a public, homeschooling program. The teachers are supportive, responsive, and very encouraging. I really liked the fact that, though we communicated online, I created relationships with them that I still keep today. (I was in CAVA from 3rd grade to 12th grade). Their curriculum challenged me to be more responsible and disciplined, but in the same way I loved the fact that I was actually learning. I valued the flexibility that CAVA allowed me because it helped me find my strengths such as finding my learning style and improve my weaknesses. Overall, I was very grateful for CAVA's curriculum because it prepared me for college being that I was able to customize my learning patterns which has helped me pass my college courses. I would recommend CAVA because it's personalized, engaging, challenging and helps students grow academically. CAVA really helps develop a students' potential!
