    Georgia Cyber Academy is a great home-school! They are really good at helping you get adjusted to homeschooling. The learning resources that are used are very engaging and it seems that teachers try really hard to make the learning experience as fun as possible. The school organizes many field trips and school wide gatherings that give students a chance to meet their teachers and interact with other students. These field trips are at really cool places in Georgia such as the Botanical Gardens and museums around the state. Only problem that I've had this past year with it is that sometimes teachers do not respond to emails right away. Also I hope they find ways to let students/parents make their school day schedule more flexible. For me, and many other people, home-school is a good option for someone who needs flexibility in their schedule. But as of right now the schedule is pretty set. Other than these two things, its a great school!

    I love Georgia Cyber Academy! The charter school has amazing staff members and teachers that help students reach their full potential. By enrolling in Georgia Cyber Academy I was able to participate in a dual enrollment program with my local college. In addition, I was able to graduate high school two years early with 30 credit hours towards my college degrees. Furthermore, I was able to participate in several clubs and community service opportunities.
    Creating a strong teaching bond with students over the online platform is difficult, but GCA proved that it can be done. Teachers were determined to help their students succeed, implementing many teaching styles and supplements for us to use. Students who worked hard and cared about their education easily succeeded. I enjoyed taking charge of my own learning schedule. I strongly believe it prepared me for college better than traditional schools would have allowed. In terms of socialization, I was provided with opportunities to meet other students at in-persons events, activities, and clubs. I made lifelong friends and memories at these events! Overall, GCA pushed me to be better in every aspect of my education. I am now a determined, hard-working student and employee. I would suggest GCA for any student who cares about their education.
