Georgia Connections Academy Reviews

Georgia Connections Academy is a great online homeschooling program. I have attended school here for 8 years and I love it! This school provides its students with the same curriculum as everyone else in Georgia. The only difference there is, is that you are at home. They allow you to have a flexible schedule, unlike other online schools. What this means is that I can take my own time and don't have to rush. This stops students from getting stressed out and overwhelmed. GACA also allows students to socialize with their teachers and classmates. You can attend what is called a "livlesson" which allows you to speak to your teachers and classmates in an online classroom. GACA also organizes many field trips, which allows students to remain social. Unlike other online shools, GACA organizes special events for their students such as dances, field days, and much more! GACA is a stress free, diverse, and flexible online public school that everyone should try out.

Georgia Connections Academy (also known as GACA) is an online public school, but that doesn't mean students are unable to socialize and support their school. I've been apart of the National English Honors Society, BETA Club, Student Council, and I even started my own club. Not only that, but GACA has field trips all over the state!
The teachers are very nice and you can reach out to them at almost any point throughout the day. In the 5 years I've been here, I've had very few issues with the teachers. They're all very welcoming.
This school is awesome! The curriculum is fantastic and the teachers really care about each students education. They are always offering help with classes through a phone call, emails, and Live Lesson/Live Teacher Time! Couldn't have asked for a better school!
